When Martin Luther King Jr. grew up in the South, black people were treated very badly. They had to go to separate schools they could only ride in the back of the bus. In many places, they were not allowed to vote. Even as a young boy, Martin knew this was wrong. And when he grew up, he did something about it. He made speeches. He led marches. He made everyone think about what was fair. Follow the life of Martin Luther King Jr., from his childhood to his role as leader of the civil rights movement. Recommended for ages 7 to 10.
