    when Martin Luther King was a boy he saw things that should not be.In his life he got a college degree. when he was finished with his 4 years of college Mlk wanted to spend 8years in the north instead of the south. The reson why he went to the north instead of the south is because people treated black people better. while he was there he fell in love whith a white girl,after they wanted to get maried but his father said no and her father said no because he was black and the girl was white. this maid him angry and maid him think he should change that.

    MLK was not born in boston i didn’t know that he was born in the southern i thought he was born in the north it was a nice thing of MLk to make desegregation .

    Gandhi he was leader of india when england tried to take over he used words with love, peace and he didn’t use violence but he used peaceful words.

    He led a boycott to integrate the buses, and he made it only for day. Not to get on the bus with until change the law, It worked that was one civil right changed.

    In this book so far Martin is telling us about his life and it kind of makes you visualize the life back then with all of the racsim and segration. Martin married a girl named Coretta Scott she wanted to make a family so they thought it over and Martin said he would have to get a job first so he started to look all over the world and finally got exceped to be a minister like his father in ALABAMA. there was bad racim there he did not think he could raze his children there but his wife convenced him to they had 2children they prayed togather and helped people feel good about their selfs
    then he makes a big diffrence in the world if it wasent for DR.MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. I would not be sitting here writing about this with mala
    that is all I know aboutethis book so far.

  11. I know he was scared move from the south to the North but his wife Corretta Scott said be stron . He said I am going to be strong and they move to the south. It was a lot of segregation in the south. White people was mean to the black people .

    Their was a lady named Rosa Parks one day she was coming from work and she was arrested and went to jail for not giving up her seat to a white man They put up signs that said don’t ride the buses on Monday.
    It was supposed to be just for 1 day but lasted for a year and 1 half.
    This changed the law and was the beginning of civil rights.

    Martin Luther King wanted to learn about Gandhi in his school. He went to school in the north. Gandhi was a peaceful leader he saw that Gandhi change things in India not with gins but by changing peoples minds. Martin Luther King Jr. was a person who wanted to stop segregation.

    In the book King learned about Gandhi. Gandhi was a man not trying to fight with guns, but with his own words. Gandhi changed things in India. India belonged to England and he changed this by changing the way people think.

  17. We read about Martin Luther King. He help white and black people get together. In the south there was segregation. That meant black people were not treated fair.
