9780060288228: Don't Know Much About Martin Luther King Jr.

When did King first encounter an integrated world? (see page 20)

How did he learn about nonviolent movements? (see page 53)

Why did King need so much paper in the Birmingham jail? (see page 88)

Best-selling author Kenneth C. Davis sheds light on the most prominent leader of the Civil Rights movement. Martin Luther King Jr. had big dreams about ending segregation and fervently advocated nonviolent protests. Tragically, his life was cut short. Davis weaves a smooth, flowing narrative through his trademark question-and-answer format, peppering the text with informational sidebars and compelling quotes. Dramatic photographs and stirring black-and-white illustrations by Machiyo Kodaira reveal King's public courage and private fear, as well as the tumultuous times in which he lived.
