Martin Luther King was getting tired of being treated unequally to the whites. As seen in the picture, the coffee shops were labeled "Whites Only" or "Blacks Only". This was unfair, because all of the black restaurants, bathrooms, and more were lesser of value to the white things.
I Have A Dream
I Have A Dream that this nation will rise up and live up to it's creed.
The schools didn't even give the same education that the whites got! MLK wanted his children to grow up to be in a world full of peace between the two races.

In 1960, Martin Luther King started to preach about why they should have equal rights.
Three years later on August 28, 1963, MLK gave his famous "I Have A Dream" speech in front of nearly 250,000 people. He called to end racism and wanted economic rights.
Martin Luther King's speech inspired many with references to things like The Bible, Gandhi, and Abraham Lincoln. It made racism seem really uncool, and the protests were not usually violent, sosome of the whites started to agree.
The bathrooms were becoming so they were just separated by men and women instead of race, and everyone had a place to go instead of running across town. Peace was finally arriving in America .
