          First I'm going to talk about MLK he is one of the greatest person in the world. He was so great because he ended segregation.

            I like it because when Rosa Parks created the boycott for the bus Martin joined in. The black people walked for 381 days. They walked for longer than a year! Finally they walked so long that the white people said that black people could sit anywhere they wanted on the bus
