Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King


Martin Luther King was a Baptist minister and a student of the Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi. He is the only black American whose birthday is a national holiday. It’s celebrated on the third Monday of January each year.
Before the Civil War (1861-1865), most black people in the USA were slaves, with no rights. In 1868 they got the right to vote. But in the Southern states there was still ‘segregation’ (separate schools, parks, restaurants, toilets for whites and blacks). In 1954 segregation in schools became illegal, but it still existed in other public places.
An African American woman named Rosa Parks was arrested on December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, because she refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white man. Black residents of the city were outraged. Martin Luther King was chosen to lead the protests that became known as the Montgomery bus boycott. King persuaded the black citizens to protest peacefully.

Jack London – English novelist

Jack London

Jack London


The novelist and short-story writer Jack London (1876-1916) was, in his lifetime, one of the most popular authors in the world. After World War I his fame was eclipsed in the United States by a new generation of writers, but he remained popular in many other countries, especially in the Soviet Union, for his romantic tales of adventure mixed with elemental struggles for survival.
John Griffith London was born in San Francisco on Jan. 12, 1876. His family was poor, and he was forced to go to work early in life to support himself. At 17 he sailed to Japan and Siberia on a seal-hunting voyage. He was largely self-taught, reading voluminously in libraries and spending a year at the University of California. In the late 1890s he joined the gold rush to the Klondike. This experience gave him material for his first book, ‘The Son of Wolf’, published in 1900, and for ‘Call of the Wild’ (1903), one of his most popular stories.

Bonfire night

Bonfire night

Bonfire night

Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes Day is one of the most popular festivals in Great Britain. It commemorates the discovery of the co-called Gunpowder Plot, and is widely celebrated throughout the country. On the fifth of November boys and girls get an old suit or maybe an old pair of dad’s pants and an old jacket and stuff them with straw or newspapers. Then they make a villainous-looking head. If they can get a hat, they put that on too. The dummy is called a Guy.
The children then march their Guy through the streets asking people for money: “A penny for the Guy, mister?” If they collect enough money, they go and buy fireworks — rockets, and sparklers and the like.
As soon as it gets dark, everyone, children and adults, make a huge bonfire and burn the dummy on it.
