On January 17, 1966 Martin Luther King went on stage during the Chicago Southern Christian Leadership Conference or the SCLC to talk about Civil Rights.

During some of the years of the 1900’s there was a lot of segregation and discrimination between skin colors. Then Martin Luther King went to the SCLC to talk to many people about why discrimination is wrong and that they should take a stand. That was one of the many events that lead to the end of segregation, but many people today still believe that discrimination still exists today.
