Martin Luther KIng
People think of Martin Luther King JR as a person how had a dream, but he accomplished more then that--he accomplished a mission.
His first adventure started when he was born in Atlanta GA. When Martin was a kid he would play games with his siblings. He would go outside to play, but he couldn’t play because the parents of the kids he was playing with were against African American. Martin thought that was weird, but he wanted to change it.
Martin went to Morehouse College and he graduated. He was asked to go to Boston College for a doctor’s degree in 1955, he refused. Martin moved to Montgomery AL. Martin was boycotting how blacks aren’t equal to whites. He got arrested for the boycott. Of course Martin was never violent and he never used weapons.
Martin won a Nobel peace prize for causing peace. Martin Luther King JR is very famous for his “I have a dream” speech he recited on August 28 1963.On April 4 1968, on the roof top of a hotel a murderer named James Earl Ray shot Martin.
Now we celebrate Martin Luther Kings birthday in thanks of the freedom he gave us.
