Martin Luther King

ebook

Follow the inspiring life of Martin Luther King, Jr., in a moving, vital, and informative book by an author and an illustrator with close ties to Dr. King's family.

Martin Luther King devoted his life to helping people, first as a Baptist minister and scholar and later as the foremost leader in the African-American civil rights movement. An organizer of the Montgomery bus boycott and cofounder of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Dr. King won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 for combating racial inequality through nonviolent resistance. As a result of his actions, the United States Congress passed the historic Civil Rights Act of 1968. Originally published in 1964 , this book's powerful story and important message remain as relevant today as they were more than fifty years ago. With a new foreword by the author's wife, Xernona Clayton, the text has been reviewed and updated for a new generation and features striking new illustrations by illustrator Donald Bermudez.
