Martin Luther King's Speech

Hook: Standing amongst the huge crowd I could sense hope. In 1963 August 28th Martin Luther King (aka MLK) made his speech to try and unite all of us together, and try to make it equal for the black and white people of the United States Of America.

DESCRIBING- All black people were there to support each other and make a change people were trying to make the country a better place for all people. Martin luther king tried to make equal rights for everybody so that all the states could come together and make one safe and happy country.

EFFECTING US- If we were black kids it will affect us in so many ways such as, being slaves for white people and they don’t pay you. using the public toilets when you need to go to the toilet, using different water fountains, segregated and many things that black people can’t do.

The white people demand all black people to sit at the back of the bus. White people get 10x more funding than the black peoples school.


  1. I like the way you have thought about how it might have felt if you were living in those times. Isn't it amazing that such inequalities still existed not so very long ago.
    Did you think about and compare what it was like in NZ during that time?
    I think maybe you could have posted this without the subtitles. Keep up the great thinking Sapphire.
