Interactive Timeline: MLK’s Legacy

Posted on: 01.12.2016 in interact

Every year, on the third Monday of January, we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. Though he was assassinated at the early age of 39, he managed to accomplish extraordinary things during his life and had a heavy impact on the success of the Civil Rights Movement. Thanks to his legacy, black people in the United States are able to vote without restrictions, attend any school and live wherever they like.

    martin Luther king Jr did a amazing thing in society and i hope whoever assassinated him with that gun was caught and put in prison for life what a terrible day in history that was. If he became president then that would be amazing but sadly he was assassinated.
