About This Book
"The arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice." —Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther King, Jr., dedicated his life to bringing equal rights to African Americans through peaceful protest. Sometimes the cruelty of racists would test King’s faith in the goodness of humankind. Sometimes a vicious death threat on the telephone in the middle of the night would weaken his resolve.
However, King remained faithful to his dream of bringing equality to black people. In time, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s work changed the course of history. Although King was killed while he was still a young man, he helped bend “the arc of history” closer to justice.
