Martin Luther King, Jr. – Just the Facts!

“Martin Luther King, Jr. was a civil rights protester and leader in America during the 1950s and 1960s. He wanted to see an America where black and white people could stand side by side as equals. During America at this time, this was not the case. Deep-rooted racism and segregation laws kept different races from mixing together.

As a church leader and a deeply religious man he encouraged people to protest against inequality peacefully, in a nonviolent manor. The changes that Martin Luther King, Jr. helped to bring about changed America forever and inspired generations of people worldwide.”
