9780062250025: I've Seen the Promised Land: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is one of the most celebrated figures of the twentieth century.

Set against key moments of the civil rights movement, here is the story of the powerful, eloquent spiritual leader and his belief that nonviolence could be used to overcome racial discrimination.

Walter Dean Myers's moving narrative and Leonard Jenkins's compelling paintings convey a vivid and striking image of the man who moved American society closer to the ideals of freedom and fairness. Dr. King's dream that all Americans would be judged by their individual actions and character is one we still cherish today.
