Fantastic book! This is a great book that succinctly discusses the life of MLKJ and his thinking during his march against segregation. There are great pictures used that show the passion and the fear people had during this time.

I am reading this book that Woo Jeong and Seong Ho read. Woo Jeong told me some events that had happend in the book. But i am not sure about the
the story. So i am reading this book and i think it's good to know about someone that is famous in the world.

He is brave. He is charismatic. And he is determined.
Martin Luther King is born to be a great leader of civil right and he is my inspiration.

The book contains some new insight into the thinking of Dr. King. It is an excellent way to introduce or expand upon the learning of intermediate and high school students.

I liked that he stoped Americans from treating Blacks so badly! But the sad part is when he got shot!
I thought this book was inspiring and informational and it pains me to think that rascism is still existant in todays world I think it was nice to know how determined a person can be.
