The title tells me that we are celebrating the memory of the black history month. And the memory of Martin Luther King, Jr The first thing I notice about the poem that he is talking about Freedom I selected this poem because Martins poem always inspired me since third grade.

She created the poem in the mood of love caring and freedom.

Dear Chris, February is the black history month. I know its the end of black history month. Some of the lessons about struggle and survival and prevailing are rooted right in their community. We celebrate black history month because it represents their freedom that African Americans fought for. Its important because black people have been through a lot. They fought for freedom to gains respect and to be treated like the white people. I selected this poem because martin Luther king made a change in the life of the black people. Reading the poem made me feel happy.
