BC: As you can see Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most famous rebels of the world who fought for a cause even if dying for it.

FC: Martin Luther King Jr

1: what does a rebel mean? a person who stands up for something that they don't want or someone who stands up for other people who can't. Just like Martin Luther King Jr.

2: Think about being black and living in the times where you had give up your seat for a white person and you had to live in bad places where they were mean to you. Would you want to do that? I wouldn't because everyone's a person and you can't really just judge on how they look because they aren't always bad.

3: Thinking about that reminds me of someone. do you know who I'm thinking about? who has a famous speech? yeah you know Martin Luther King Jr he is one of the famous rebels who stood up for the blacks back in the 1920's because of racism and discrimination. He was even willing to give up his life to make sure that everyone was equal no matter what their skin color is.

4: While fighting for their rights they were beaten, arrested, and sometimes even worse killed but they kept going for their goal, their freedom and respect for all that had different skin color. while Martin Luther King Jr was in jail people were still doing what they can do so they get to it like Rosa Parks she was a women who was coming from a long day and she was very tired and a white man says to her to" move to the back" but she says "no!" since she was tired and the white man goes the driver and asks him to tell her to move and she doesn't and she gets sent to jail for it.

5: Nobody has every really been treated right even though things have gone by to help them. they still are called names and bullied but they still move on no matter what happens they still will remember that they were lucky that at least they still have the rights to be able to live so they take that for granite. No matter how their lives are they still remember what people along time ago did for them to get their rights.

6: One of his most famous speech is "I have a Dream" | I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. 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 one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down.together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four 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. I have a dream that one day the state of Alabama, whose governor's lips are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers.

7: I have a dream today. I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to the South. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day. This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring."
