                       I have a dream that all
                        people will be treated
                          equally and fairly.

Martin Luther King, Jr. is
remembered for using his words
instead of his fists to try to
bring about equal rights for all
people no matter what their skin
color. He won the Nobel Peace
Prize for his “peaceful”
protests.
