Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: Some Recommended Readings

At Success Academy, we make sure our scholars know just how powerful they are, that they fully understand how one individual can make a difference and how a determined group of ordinary people can change the course of history.  While we recommend reading biographies of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and histories of the civil rights movement throughout the year, these next three days provide the perfect opportunity to shine a spotlight on Dr. King’s enormous impact on American history.

We have compiled a list of nonfiction books that can pique your children’s interest in Dr. King and the civil rights movement and launch them into further research and discovery. Please see our “Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” book list here.
