This little biography of Martin Luther King, Jr tells the story of the inspiring minister and civil rights activist. Martin grew up in a family of preachers – his dad, uncle and grandfather. One day, a friend invited Martin to play at his house, but the friend’s mother wouldn’t let him in because he was black. Martin was shocked and realised there was something terribly unfair happening. He believed no one should remain silent and accept something if it’s wrong and promised himself that when he grew up, he’d fight injustice with the most powerful weapon of all: words.
