Free At Last: The Story of Martin Luther King Jr. by Angela Bull

Dr. King was a force, a beacon, and a figurehead of the Civil Rights movement.  He gave everything he had for others, and believed in activism.  Dr. King is an inspiration to activists, communities of color, and anyone that believes change can be created on a large scale by joining together!
