The third Monday in January in the US they celebrate Martin Luther King day.
We are also going to celebrate by listening to a song that will help us understand who the man was and the things he did.
Listen to the song and:
- Copy the chorus in your notebook
- Find a word meaning separation
- What did people do to stop the situation in public buses?
Some of the words in the song come from a famous speech Martin Luther King gave on 28th August 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington DC:
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!
