Martin Luther King


You may remember Martin Luther King. If you dont... he was an activist. He fought for racial equality. He was born in 1929 in the USA-Georgia. In those times racism was around and people with coloured skin were treated differently from those who had white skin. For example black people couldn't sit in the front of the bus. They couldnt eat in the same restaurants or drink from the same tap. Many people protested and some even got arrested. Martin Luther King fought for the equality of both races and hoped that someday his dream would happen in reality. One of his most famous speeches was 'I have a dream' His speech gave inspiration to so many protesters that they eventually one racial equality. Sadly Martin Luther King did not live long enough to see his dream come true. He was assassinated as he was getting ready for his next speech. We will all remember him as a man who fought for his dreams and suceeded.
