Dr.King

Martin Luther King Is a good leader to me because he never gave up on his dream no matter what he fought for what he believed in and if he wouldn't have today would be different. Martin Luther King Jr. inspires me to be great and to do great things. He shows that dreams can come true no matter how big.

Growing Up

During Dr.Kings child hood he was always getting picked on for being a different color. He was told he couldn't go in somewhere because he was black. Dr.king had to deal with a lot of hate and racism in his life so he felt like it was his life calling to make sure blacks and whites share and get along, Without him doing this today would be so different. Some of the friends you have now you wouldn't anymore. All because one man stood up for what he believed in.
