Martin Luther King Jr. was born on 1929.He was a
famous civil right leader. Dr. King inspired many people to keep follow in their dreams. The “I have a dream” speech is his most famous speech.
ď‚— Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) does deserve a memorial. I
think so because he fought for all races to have freedom. MLK believed that all people should be treated equally, not to be judged by the color of your skin, but by the content of their character. This is why I think MLK deserve a memorial. MLK didnâ€™t use violence he use speeches and marches.
