  • Summary Of Martin Luther King Jr.

    Let’s go back in history, to when the United States was not “land of freedom”. Let’s go back to when this country was segregated when African Americans were treated like anything, but human beings. In school, my teachers taught me multiple things.

After the thirteenth amendment was ratified, and African Americans were “free”,…
