"King! The Man and His Dream" is one of five books in the Holiday Play Series. Intended as a teacher/student learning tool, this scripted play is written for 16 major character roles, as well as many roles for extras. Synopsis: 1960's...THE DREAM BEGINS! Martin Luther King, Jr. was a young negro boy who grew up in the 1930's and 1940's. People of the black race, called negroes, were segregated, or set apart from others. There were negro churches and negro schools. So-called "white" restaurants would not serve food to negroes. Some states had laws that separated blacks in theaters and on buses. They had separate drinking fountains and bathrooms. Black Americans, sometimes called African Americans, did not have the same rights as other American citizens. Black people and other minorities thought these "segregation" laws were unfair. They wanted the same rights as white people. And many white people agreed. Young Martin Luther King had a dream of equality for all people, regardless of the color of their skin. He became one of the first leaders on the civil rights movement. His "non-violent" army of followers protested peacefully to bring attention to the injustice of segregation. They did not fight or cause a racial war. When King's followers broke an unjust law, they quietly went to jail. When they were attacked, they did not fight back. These non-violent acts got the attention of the people in the United States and around the world. King's dream came closer to reality when the United States Congress passed amendments to the constitution giving civil rights to all people. There were many steps in getting there. In 1964, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in helping to eliminate racial discrimination in the United States.
