New Face for the $10 Bill?

We honor George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and several other important Americans by putting their pictures on our money. Now, James McKnight of Atlanta, Georgia, thinks it's time to put a new face on one of our bills. He is asking the U.S. government to put the face of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on our ten-dollar bill.

Dr. King fought for equal rights for African-Americans. On January 16, we have a holiday to celebrate his birthday. McKnight said that putting Dr. King on the ten-dollar bill is another good way to honor him.

Right now, Alexander Hamilton, who helped create our Constitution, is on the ten-dollar bill. Congress will decide whether or not to change the bill.
