Each title in this series tells the story of a man or woman whose dedication to their chosen cause led to changes that affect all our lives today. Each includes a vivid description of the world in which the famous person lived. Martin Luther King's life is vividly described through detailed text and illustrations, from his humble beginnings in America's Deep South to black Americans' civil rights campaigner in the 1960s. The story of his rise to fame is also the story of black emancipation, giving the young reader an insight into how races treated each other in the very recent past. His death also shows them how deep these divisions were, but Luther King's legacy helps them understand the changed that have come about because of people like him.
