Martin Luther King (born January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia, died April 4, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee) was a man who single-handedly brought down a system of cruel and oppressive cheating against non-whites in the US Heartland.
He was a man who used non-violence to resist the unfair conditions that many whites forced on blacks and other non-whites. But his battle was personally for blacks who were cheated ruthlessly. He is well-known for his famous "I have a dream" speech where he promised that one day, white and colored kids would sit together at the table of brotherhood. He convinced Southern and Midwestern whites that they were wrong in the way they cheated non-whites.
