Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Martin Luther King Jr.

He is most famous for his I have a dream speech witch changed the shape of Amerca. He personally caused change where no one else could even though it put his life at risk.

In his speech he talks about a world where there is gender and racial equality.
He fought to end things like this.

Isn't it right that every child should have a bed

To have a roof over their head?

Isn't it right that every child

Should be shown affection,

Be safe, secure, and have protection?

Isn't it right?

We all have a right to an education,

Seek help, receive the right medication.

Everyone has the right to a good nutrition,

Not malnutrition.

We are equal!

We all have the right

To enjoy school,

Be treated kindly, not like a fool.

We should all speak our minds.

Our rights should not be declined.

We are equal.

We all have the right

To follow our dreams.

Isn't it right we shouldn't judge in looks,

Comparing ourselves to models in magazines and books?

Isn't it right?

Express yourself,

Don't be afraid to stand up.

Be you.

We are equal.

Suicide is a major problem

Among teens.

We don't let them blossom

Into individual human beings.

Be yourself,

Don't be scared.

We are not always here to be compared.

We are equal!

There is no one like us on the earth.

We are special.

Everyone is valued the same amount of worth.

We are all on the same level.

We are equal!

Isn't that right?

Martin Luther fought for the rights in the Poem above along with what they talk about in the Song "Blacker The Berry" by Kendrick Lamer. (This song is not school appropriate)

However no one live for ever. Martin Luther King Jr was shot on April 4, 1968.
