Born in Atlanta, Georgia on January 15, 1929 Martin Luther King Jr. led many boycotts but one in particular was the boycott of segregated city bus line which gave them hope that they can finally have their own freedom. Martin Luther King Jr. sacrifices his own life for his fellow African-American people just to have their rights and freedom like the rest. He fought for many years with a lot of people backing him up such as Rosa Parks, who went to jail just because she do not want to give her sit for a white men, and other people. Dr King has been in and out of jail because of his will to never give up about his dream that one day all skin color will unite as one. Martin Luther King Jr. died in Memphis, Tennessee on April, 4 1968. He was assassinated on his hotel by James Earl Ray that day. As years past President John Fitzgerald Kennedy made the birthday of Dr King as a Major Holiday in America. Dr King graduated in Morehouse College which today lays his statue. I really recommend this book to everyone because this book says a lot about Dr King. This book makes the reader understand more about Dr King. This book shows everything about him when he was born until the day he died. This book got a lot of pictures in it and it makes it more interesting for the reader to read it especially teenagers. All in all this entire book is really good.
