Martin Luther King, Jr.

by Khalil from Newark

Martin Luther King is my hero because he fought for our civil rights. When he was alive, black people were not treated equally as white people. Martin Luther King Jr. is also my hero because he went through a lot of pain and suffering just for every black person’s civil rights. He is a great person to look up to because he was educated and was a strong black man. That is why he is my hero.
