|The guest speaker (Tory Bullock)
There was a speaker for this meeting and he made things a little more exciting and fun. He talked about how he was an activist and the simple things that we can do to change the world. After he spoke, we moved on to the talent show where kids who are a part of the MLK Scholar program would show us what kind of talent they have. There was some alright performances, but the ones that stood out to me was when two kids did spoken word. One girl spoke about how she is a Muslim and how people judge her for believing in what she believes in, how she is treated, and how wrong it is for people to do so. Then right after she was on, a boy went to the stage and spoke about the current state of black communities and the violence that goes on around in these communities.
I had a great time at MLK and I got to socialize with the kids at my table, even though most of us were tired, we got through it and I think that's the most important thing that I accomplished this summer.
