Both Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King had the same dream. There dream was to bring harmony for black and white people and racial equality. They both suffered for trying to carry out there dream and trying there best to make the world fair.
Nelson Mandela was born in July 18th 1918. Back in the days in South Africa the black people couldn't vote and they suffered because the white people had all the power and money. He went to jail for 27 years for opposing the government by making things equal. After getting released he found out that black people can vote and then he became president of South Africa. One of his speech’s was “A LONG WALK TO FREEDOM.”
Martin Luther King was born in January 15 1929. He was a leader in the African civil rights movement. The white people didn't like what Martin Luther King was doing and so the white people decided to find out a way to get him arrested. Martin Luther King wrote a book and he was signing it and apparently got stabbed. He got assassinated in 1968.
These two great men worked so hard just to make their country a better place.. Their dream officially came true in the end. So Martin Luther King once said “I HAD A DREAM”. So in 1968 in April 4 Martin Luther king has passed away and Nelson Mandela is still alive. He is now 95 years old.
