Books That Carry On the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We celebrate and observe the Martin Luther King. Jr. national holiday on January 20, remembering his legacy of struggle for equal rights and justice for all people.
From our friends at Brightly, we offer these stories for kids, stories of brave people who worked for equal rights. In this way we celebrate the past and help build a vision for the future.
