Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

1956 A.D.

"True courage takes sacrifice,” said Grace, after hearing the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on a scavenger hunt through Washington, D.C.  Will the children decide to use courage in their own lives to help others?

Today, we join "B" -  a young girl living in Montgomery, Alabama in the 1950's - to experience how her life changed when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a bus boycott in her city!  What impact did Dr. King have on the Civil Rights Movement in the United States?
