Martin Luther King Jr gave the great “I Have A Dream” speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Do you wonder why? Read on to find out.
The Lincoln Memorial is to honor Abraham Lincoln who freed the slaves. The slaves were people of different race who were treated differently than white people.

Martin Luther King Jr did and thought nearly the same as Abraham Lincoln about treating people who were different.
This is why I think that Martin Luther King Jr gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.
