I Have a Dream: The Life and Times of Martin Luther King, Jr. chronicles the phenomenal impact of Dr. King’s life as he emerges as one of the most influential and charismatic leaders of the American Century. Inspired by the arrest of Rosa Parks, Dr. King becomes the prime mover behind the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott, putting his philosophy of non-violent protest to work. He gains national recognition as the dominant force in the Civil Rights Movement during its decade of greatest achievement. This great leader’s struggle and his ongoing dream of lifting “our nation from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood” is a story of inspiration for us all.
