Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela were both men who had a dream to make their countries have racial equality. They both have suffered violence with racism and struggled with with life in prison but they still had a dream to conquer civil rights inequality with the black and white.

Nelson.M was born in July 18, 1918 in South Africa and suffered a lot of violence in jail for 27 years. He was sent to jail on April 20, 1964. He had a dream to solve equal rights between the white and black people. Back in those days the black people in South Africa could not vote for anything until Nelson.M came and he changed the country's life.

Martin.LK was born Januarary 5th 1929. His mother was a school teacher, she taught Martin how to read before he went to school. He had a brother, Alfred and a sister Christine. Both his father and his grandfather were ministers. Martin was very good in school so he skipped grades in both elementary school and high school. He discovered issues in racism. Martin.Lk was mad when he saw signs in the public that said whites only, so he wanted to do something to stop racism.
