“Dr. King was born in 1929 in Georgia. Since he was black, he could not go to the same schools as white children. Black Americans also had to use separate restrooms, restaurants, theaters and swimming pools in some states. Dr. King thought that this was wrong.

His efforts helped bring about new laws to create equal rights for all Americans.”
