Jayden,Lukis,and Billy Martin Luther King

P1:  This week marks the 50th anniversary of the I have a dream speech by Martin Luther King. On August 1963 in Washington DC, underneath the statue of Abraham Lincoln was where he made his remarkable speech. He gave this speech because he was fighting for racial equality so that some day the blacks and whites would live in peace fairly.

P2: Martin Luther King was born on January 15th 1929. He was a lawyer but was also a minister. And he also got stabbed but he managed to recover. Then a few days after  his house got bombed, One day something happened. He got assassinated. He fought for civil rights because there was no peace between white and black.

P3: Back in those days In America it was difficult for the black. because they couldn't sit at the front of the bus or if the was not enough seats for the whites they had to move to the back. Thats why one day Rosa Park confronted the white bus driver saying that she would not go to the back. So what happened was she had to go to jail

P4: In america 1960’s the black people were segregated. Martin luther King was good because he did peaceful demonstrations. Black also boycotted the bus so they lost lots of money.

They all did it until they change the rule of the bus so the blacks could sit anywhere on the bus
