Martin Luther King Jr.
Being in the civil rights is a big step for the blacks and the color people to have there own rights. That's where Martin read his famous I have a dream speech to a crowd. After the civil rights movement Martin led people. to a march. It happen on March 1965 he led them on a 50-mile, voting right march, it went from Selma to Montgomery. There were dangerous situations though. Martin got arrested numerous times and as his followers fight to get him out of prison they were battling tear gas, cattle prods, and police batons. but it was all worth it. Even though they have rough time the national attention drawn by there effort led to the Voting Rights of 1965. But even for all the effort Martin still had to pay the ultimate prize. He died April 04, 1968, because he was shot by James Earl Ray. The people panic and started to go all violent again, and we should know that Martin didn't really believe in violence as the answer. But thanks to Robert F. Kennedy speech for Martin everyone was calmed. But Martin still became a memorable person that day thanks to his belief for blacks and color people rights.
