It seems unbelievable now that not even half a century ago, America was segregated. Everything depended on the colour of one’s skin, whether it was black or white. Access to schools, restaurants, parks, buses, or even water fountains was segregated. And born into this segregated world was Martin Luther King Jr.
 
Son of a black preacher, King was taught from a young age that he was equal and deserved the same rights and freedoms as anyone else. He dreamt of a nation where people are not judged by the colour of their skin but by their character. And he believed that dream could one day become a reality. Armed with only the non-violent teachings of Gandhi and a staunch belief that all men and women are created equal, Martin Luther King Jr stepped to the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement.
 
Through a series of peaceful protests and marches, King captured the attention of the world...and changed the lives of millions of Americans forever.
