Many Have Shared MLK's Dream

in some places, it has been more difficult to be heard

A few years before Martin Luther King, Jr., Day became a legal holiday, a teenaged girl made the news. The same age as myself, and attending a school in a different state, she appeared on the news when her High School refused to allow her to read a paper she had written about Martin Luther King. The paper was about Rev. King's "I Have a Dream" speech, and the girl was nearly in tears because she was told she could not read it to her class.
