Descriere:

Not even half a century ago America was segregated, when everything depended on the color of one's skin. Access to schools, restaurants, parks, buses or even water fountains was segregated. And born into this segregated world was Martin Luther King Jr.

The son of an african-american preacher, Martin Luther King Jr. was taught from a young age that he was equal. He deserved the same rights and freedoms as anyone. He dreams of a nation where people are not judged by the color of their skin but by their character. And he believed that his dream could one day become reality.

Armed with the nonviolent teachings of Ghandi and a staunch belief that all men and women were created equal, Martin Luther King Jr. stepped to the forefront of the Civil Rights movement. Through a series of peaceful protests and marches, Martin Luther King Jr. captured the attention of the world... and changed the lives of millions of Americans forever.

This graphic-novel biography of Martin Luther King Jr. packs a surprising amount of information into a slim package. It begins with Martin Luther King’s birth, then covers some background on his parents and youth in Atlanta, his education and mentors, and his many years leading and organizing the civil rights movement.
