Martin Luther King, Jr
Not that long ago, African Americans were denied basic rights and opportunities in the United States, but one man’s work and dedication helped change the future of our country — not just for African Americans, but for all Americans. In Martin Luther King, Jr., kids will take an in-depth look at the life of this civil rights leader and learn about his commitment to nonviolence in the pursuit of social change. From his days as a minister in Alabama to his role in the battle for equal rights, discover how Americans responded to the actions and words of the Civil Rights Movement’s most influential leader. Kids will also learn about the important milestones of the Civil Rights Movement — from the historic decision of Brown vs. The Board of Education to the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the legendary March on Washington.
