Black and Whites in the past

Today, my class discussed about how black people were treated horribly half of the 20th century. We read a book called I have a dream where Martin Luther King jr gave a speech about how horrible the white governments were and how he wanted the white and black people just to be friends. We discussed about this because Nelson Mandela passed away Thursday night. At first, I didn’t even know he passed away or who he was. Then, I learned he was a freedom fighter and got arrested for 27 years! He didn’t even do anything wrong. There was also Rosa Parks, but the toe people we focused on was Martin Luther King jr and Nelson Mandela.
