Martin Luther King Jr.

School won’t be held on January 21, 2019 because of Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Every year MLK Jr. Day is celebrated on the third Monday of January, a day that is close to his birthday of January 15, 1926. He was born in Atlanta, Georgia, a state in the Southern part of the United States. Martin was a social activist and Baptist minister. This means that he campaigned for a change in the world. In Martin’s case, the change that he wanted to bring was equality. People that lived before 1954 were allowed to discriminate blacks and other people of color. They would be put into schools that were separated from people with white skin. He gave many inspirational speeches, such as his most famous, “I Have A Dream,” speech. Through his want to do what is right MLK Jr. was able to accomplish many things through peaceful and nonviolent techniques. Unfortunately, MLK was assassinated on April 4, 1968, at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. He died soon after at the St Joseph’s Hospital. On January 21, remember to think about this important person in history.

Great job on your story. I am a huge fan of MLK, Jr. and have read quite a few books about him, as well as his autobiography.

Have you ever listened to his speeches? My favorite is the one he gave the night before he was shot referred to as the "Mountain top" speech. It is really good.
