Martin Luther King Jr. January 15, 1929-April 4,1968

Martin Luther King Jr. fought for civil rights and equality for all races. He felt it was wrong to discriminate just because of the color of the persons skin. In his famous speech " I have a dream" he explains how he dreams of a world where his children aren't judged by the color of their skin, but by the kind of people they are. He led non-violent protests trying to stop discrimination against blacks, while keeping people from going on violent rages and injuring people because they think they're right.
