MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR (Kid's Discover Magazine)
--Martin Luther King, Jr. preached love and believed nonviolent protest
was the only way to freedom and equality for black Americans, and in
return for his vision of peace. he was arrested, stabbed, and finally
assassinated. Despite his tragic and untimely death, many successes
filled the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., as kids will discover in
this issue. For one thing, his tireless efforts to improve the lives of
millions of Americans garnered him the Nobel Peace Prize at the young
age of 35.

Martin Luther King Jr., for kids, examines how the legacy of slavery,
Jim Crow laws, the KKK, segregation, and ongoing discrimination created
a culture of violence and oppression around black communities. Then
King, a passionate young pastor, suddenly emerged as the leader of the
Alabama bus boycott in 1955 and quickly became the voice and the hope of
the growing civil rights movement. As head of the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference, he inspired the sit-ins, freedom rides, and
marches that ultimately led to the passing of the Civil Rights Bill in
1964. However, his message proved too radical for many people, and
bloodshed nearly always followed in his wake – ultimately claiming his
life in 1967. Despite this, violence did not destroy the dream of Martin
Luther King Jr.; for kids curious to learn more about his legacy, this
issue also describes his contributions to many other campaigns to
improve the lives of black Americans that continue today. --$1.25
