The Road to Freedom, Martin Luther King & the Civil Rights Movement

The Road to FreedomBy Jon Goldstein with the writings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join Dr. Martin Luther King on The Road to Freedom. From his first encounter with racism to his immortal speech delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, Dr. King walks students through the experience of the civil rights movement.

Students make discoveries with Dr. King as he encounters the teachings of some of the great historical figures who fought for freedom before him: Henry David Thoreau, who introduced him to the concept of civil disobedience, and Mahatma Gandhi, who showed him that nonviolent resistance was the most powerful weapon in the fight for equality.
