One of the most influential figures of the twentieth century, Martin Luther King, Jr., transformed the socioeconomic landscape of the United States through his boundless courage, powerful mind, and unshakable faith in the transformative power of nonviolent protest. The son and grandson of Baptist ministers, King's spirit was forged in the flames of religious propriety, but it was his humanity and ability to apply a sense of social justice to the most pressing issue of his time that made him such a transcendent figure. The Dream Lives On is a reverent tribute to a remarkable man who refused to stand down from the fight for equal rights in the hostile environment of postwar American culture.
King's early life was devoted to scholarship. Graduating from Morehouse College at nineteen, he quickly went to win a divinity degree from Crozer Theological Seminary and a Ph.D from Boston University. It was at Crozer that King became familiar with the nonviolent principles of Mahatma Gandhi, principles that would inform his future fight against discrimination. It was a fundamental aspect ok King's beliefs that violent protest could serve only to perpetuate the cycle of violence that characterizes racism. By putting this belief into practice, King altered the course of history. For his efforts in the fight for civil rights in the United States, King was eventually awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
With evocative full-color and black-and-white photographs and a comprehensive text written by an expert in the history of struggle for civil rights in the United States, The Dreams Lives On is a stirring celebration of the life and achievements of one of the most pivotial figures of the twentieth century.
