In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Martin Luther King Jr. was an advocate for change. He believed that he could change not only the minds of American citizens, but also their hearts. He first tried to change the way Americans viewed the African American people and then he tried to change how they acted toward the African American people. He was the voice for the black community in the 1960s. Through his words, his legacy still lives on today, fifty years later. Martin Luther King Jr. had a goal: to have the whole world living together in peace, in a time when we can all be united in a brotherhood."
