I'd love to show kids this picture of Dr. Martin Luther King!! He looks thoughtful, calm, frustrated and strong all at once!! In most photos he looks so poised that it doesnt look like he is struggling.
Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968), was an American activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience.
