Martin Luther King

Storyboard Text

  • In the 1880's segregation was a big thing. White people didn't allow black people in certain stores, playgrounds, movie theaters, etc.
  • Most people were sick of it, especially Martin Luther King. So many black people were being judged and were called slurs. It was very unfair.
  • Martin work as a preacher in a black only church. Many white people harassed the church and tried to hurt people who worked there, including Martin.
  • He also worked on a farm. He harvested plants and feed animals and breaded them. Martin was sick of working on the farm and wanted to become more powerful for his people.
  • Martin decided to take a stand. He made a speech in front of thousands of people. His famous quote was ""I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin."
  • After that speech nothing was the same. It changed peoples perspective of humans and race. Most people noticed that it doesn't matter the color of your skin, everyone is human,
