STORY BY MAKAYA KENNIE, FNN REPORTER, SOUTHEAST BUREAU.
Hi. Do you know who Dr. Martin King, Jr. is? We had a whole day to celebrate him on January 16th 2012! I interviewed a nice and intelligent girl named Tynisha and I asked her, “Why do you think Dr. Martin Luther King is important?” Her response was, “Because he did so much for us, we should celebrate him.” My next question was, “How did you celebrate Dr. Martin King?” She responded with, “I was in the Martin Luther King Day parade.” My other question was, "Why do you think people should celebrate him?" She said, "I think that people celebrate him because he did so much for us."
