I read the article "The Struggle for Equal Rights." It's about African Americans struggling for civil rights. Throughout the 1950s to the 1970s African Americans didn't have the same rights as white people did. African Americans couldn't sit in certain trains, buses, or movie theaters. African Americans tried lots of things to stop this madness. The famous Rosa Parks was the first one to not give up her seat to a white person. In 1971, two lawyers started the South Poverty Law Center. They helped African Americans for 32 years and still going. They helped make their way to equal rights.
A six year old kid named Ryan Hrelja, learned that people in Africa didn't have clean water and to get water they had to walk a long ways. They got diseases from the water, since it isn't clean, its dirty. He began to raise money for wells in Africa. He did chores to start getting money. Kids also donated money to help him. Ryan builds wells in lots of countries in Africa. They can clean the water, since they put a filter in the well. They can make clean vegetables and not get diseases. Ryan raised more than one million dollars to bring clean water to over two hundred thousand people in seven different countries and beyond in Africa. Kids can go to school and get education from the clean water that Ryan gave. Ryan changed lots of kids and womens lifes in Africa.
