In 1951, Martin graduatedfirst in his class from Crozer,and won a $1,200 scholarshipto graduate school. Martin was born January 15,1929, inhis grandparents house in Atlanta, Geogia. Martin lived duringa time of segregation.During segregation,there were lawsto keep blacks and whites apart.Forexample, water fountains were separate.Some would say "whites only" Some would say"colored."Martin was one of those miracle makers who stopped these bad times. There was a group calledthe Ku Klux Klan.They did horrible things to blacks. They set of bombs and burned peopleshouses. Thats some things thathappened during segregation. Martin taught his people yo breaklaws and allow themselves to be arrested without striking back. On December 1, 1995, Rosa Parks,tired from walking all day, refused to give up her seat on a crowded Montgomerycity bus. She got arrested. Blacks were outraged! No one used buses to see if the bus company would lose money and go under.This was called "Boycott". Martin worked hardto spread the word about this. On December 5th, blacks all over Montgomery rode bikes,Shared cars, or walked to work.The city buses were normallyfilled with 18,000 black riders,were practically empty! The mayor and police got angry.The police made reasons toarrest Martin and his friends. But,the boycott went on! On November 1956, Supreme Court ruled thatsegregation on buses was againstthe law. Blacks proudly went onthe buses in the front seat with whites! In April 1963, King and Aberthanyand small groups of supporters marchedto City Hall to talk to white leaders. Theywere arrested and thrown into jail. Black students were anxious to be partof the marches. After M.L. got out of jail, Martin leda childrens march through streets of Birmingham. The police used school busesto truck 1,000 children to jail. Some as young as 6! The next day, 2,500 more children marched, This time the policeattacked them with German Shepherd dogs and sprayed themWith fire hoses. This was all on the front page of news papers. On August 28,1963 Martinmade a speech that will be remebered for generationsin front of the Lincoln Memorial... "I have a dream," he said, "That one day,the red hills of Georgia, the sons of formerslaves and the sons of former slave ownerswill be able to sit down at the table of brotherhood... I have a dream, that my four littlechildren will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of theirskin, but by the content of their character... Let freedom ring from the mighty mountainsof New York... Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill in Mississippi... untilone day... all of God's children... will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual,'Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty, we are free at last!"
