Description

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was only 25 when he helped organize the Montgomery Bus Boycott and was soon organizing black people across the country in support of the right to vote, desegregation, and other basic civil rights. Maintaining nonviolent and peaceful tactics even when his life was threatened, King was also an advocate for the poor and spoke out against racial and economic injustice until his death—from an assassin's bullet—in 1968. With clearly written text that explains this tumultuous time in history and 80 black-and-white illustrations, this Who Was...? celebrates the vision and the legacy of a remarkable man.

      • content: 20dianab - This book was okay. I had to do a report on him in fourth grade. I thought the book was interesting and wrote really well. There was a lot of stuff I didn't know but a lot of it I did. I would recomend this book to people who love nonfiction and are eager to learn about Martin Luther King Jr. I didn't think this book was as good as the other who was books. This book is also short. If you are someone who doesn't like long books, then this is a perfect fit for you. Happy reading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
