The Life and Times of Martin Luther King (Jr)
Martin Luther King Jr. is a name with which everyone in the USA is very familiar. ?I have a Dream?, is the famous speech he rendered before thousands of people in Birmingham, Albania. His dream was to get Civil Rights for the African-American people, who were until then treated as unequal. He had the courage to stand up to his conviction that people should not be discriminated because of the colour of their skin. He was a very religious man; a true man of God. Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi?s activism, he fought for the Civil Rights of the people through non-violence. Through his Civil Rights activism, he helped pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the same year he received the Nobel Peace Prize.
An inspiring real life story of the great man.
