The Jolly Mon is a song that was written by Jimmy Buffet in 1985 after sailing through the Caribbean with his daughter Savannah Jane Buffett.
Later, in 1988, the song was turned into a picture book with illustrations that would help readers to see the magic of the song. There is also a good chance that the writers of the Pirates of the Caribbean Movies were inspired to name the boat that Jack Sparrow uses in the beginning of the movie "The Curse of the Black Pearl" the Jolly Mon because of this song and book.

Dr. Martin Luther King is remembered for all of the great work he did to try to make the United States a better, more tolerant place to be. Dr. King was a CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST(someone who fights to make sure that all people are treated fairly). He led NON-VIOLENT (a peaceful way to bring about change) protests to fight for the rights of people so we could live in a world where RACE (physical traits, like the color of your skin) or ETHNICITY (where you are from or who you are CULTURALLY [your customs and beliefs] would not make a difference in the way that you were treated.
