MLK Day 2019

Yesterday, Americans celebrated Martin Luther King Day.  It is a day where people honour the memory of a man that inspired so many people to treat each other fairly.  King inspired many to stand together to make their dream of peace, unity, justice and equality to become a reality.

Here is the video we watched in the KS2 assembly today about his famous ‘I have a dream’ speech.  What message from the speech means the most to you?  Do you have a favourite line?

    Aspen class:

    The best message of this speech is about not judging people by the colour of their skin or because they are different.

    Our favourite line is ‘I have a dream’…
