Martin Luther King Jr. Day is about remembering who sacrificed so much to make a difference. We remember him for his famous “I have a dream” speech. He gave this speech at the Lincoln Memorial, on August 28, 1963. To honor Martin Luther King Jr, the school is taking off Monday, January 16th. Ava Whitney said “We celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. day because he did a very big thing for African Americans. He was very passionate about getting rid of segregation.” Martin Luther king Jr. was the first male to date to win the Nobel Peace Prize. He won at just 35 years old! Now every year on his birthday we remember him for all the great things he did.
