Synopsis

Sterling Biographies (R): Martin Luther King, Jr. A Dream of Hope by Alice Fleming

I have a dream. Those rousing words, spoken by Martin Luther King, Jr. at a historic civil rights rally in Washington, D.C., brought hope to those who listened: hope that their country could end the segregation and become united. The pastor of a small Baptist church, King became the driving force of the civil rights movement when he led a black boycott of the city's bus lines. His philosophy of non-violence and his breathtaking eloquence, helped free African Americans from decades of oppression and finally won them the rights - and opportunities - they deserved. Here is King's inspiring story, which began in Georgia in 1929 and came to a tragic end on April 4, 1968 when he was fatally shot by an assassin. Sterling Biographies are packed with information and filled with unique images that include rare documentary photographs, artwork, maps and personal artefacts. Focusing on inventors and innovative thinkers, they present first-person accounts and dramatic events related in an intimate and accessible style.
