I am Martin Luther King, Jr. This biography of Martin Luther King, Jr. uses cartoon-style illustration with occasional speech bubbles and an informal first person narrative to describe how his childhood encounters with segregation formed his character and determination to fight for freedom and social justice. It tells how in later years he recognised the potency of peaceful protest, as evidenced by the concessions won by the boycott of buses sparked by Rosa Parks' refusal to give up her seat to a white person. It gives an account of the ever increasing protest movements of the civil rights era that culminated in the march on Washington in 1963 where he delivered his 'I Have a Dream' speech. Some archive photographs and a timeline of the main events of his life conclude this accessible and engaging account of an inspiring figure.
