    yes because T. jefferson gave the right for martin luther king j.r to protest and change this world if martin luther king j.r did not protest or make a speech life would not be the same like now
    Jefferson said that if a government is not taking care of a people they have the right to change. In segregation they were not taking care of the African American people’s needs. So they had right to change it.
