Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Benjamin Bannekar Images I think Benjamin is a hero because he protested against racism and he made a change in the world he proved enemies wrong when they said that all people off the black race are mental. He had to face a lot of discrimination in his time but he never gave up even when people burnt his house down. He is a role for many generations to come and he is one of the puzzle pieces that is helping minimze discrimination (because there still is some) my hope is that our generations will finish the task that he left.
