Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was only 25 when he helped organize the Montgomery Bus Boycott and was soon organizing black people across the country in support of the right to vote, desegregation, and other basic civil rights. Maintaining nonviolent and peaceful tactics even when his life was threatened, King was also an advocate for the poor and spoke out against racial and economic injustice until his death—from an assassin's bullet—in 1968. With clearly written text that explains this tumultuous time in history and 80 black-and-white illustrations, this Who Was? celebrates the vision and the legacy of a remarkable man.

The publisher description has misspelled words and bad grammar. I did not like that. Otherwise,the book is great.
Quick history lesson
This book only provides a quick history lessons. It is a great read if you are looking to skim through the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. If you are looking for something more detailed, please do not get this book. This is an awesome book if you want to educate children. To give you an idea, the book only has about a hundred and fifty pages and I was able to finish the book in about a couple of hours. I will probably add to my collection by getting a book that delves deeper into his life.
