Martin Luther King means a lot to me and to the Black people of the world. He died without seeing his dream come true and that was very unfortunate. His “I Have a Dream” speech is one of the most popular speeches of all time, and it may be the most popular speech ever made by an African American. His dream of seeing desegregated schools with white and black children did come true, but it took time. If it wasn’t for his actions throughout the civil rights movement and his leadership in the SLCC, America would not be the way it is today. His practice of passive resistance and non violent protest was similar to Gandhi, however MLK was leading a modern day movement and he was for desegregation and equality in America and I am very thankful for what he did.
