Summary

As one of the most important and influential leaders of America’s civil rights movement, Martin Luther King Jr. became the catalyst for change in a nation marked by segregation and discrimination. Unlike the civil rights activists who argued for a violent response to segregation and prejudice, King believed that peaceful resistance could bring about great change. He dreamed of an America where all people could enjoy the same rights and opportunities and then worked tirelessly to make his dream a reality. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. Nearly half a century after his assassination, King continues to have an impact on much of the American dialogue about civil rights.

This attractive biography features a wealth of useful features, including full-color and black-and-white photographs, an index, a chronology, and sidebars. A selection of quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. and helpful fact boxes encourage further reading.
