When Martin Luther King, Jr., was growing up, he wasn't allowed to use the water fountains the white children drank from -- and he didn't understand why. As he grew older, he studied hard and practiced speaking to large groups. He marched and petitioned to change laws that separated blacks from whites. As the leader of America's civil rights movement, he inspired, and continues to inspire, millions of people to help change this country for the better.From the Inside Flap:
