80th Birthday- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Black civil rights leader, minister, advocate of nonviolence and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize was born eighty years ago on January 15, 1929. He was born in Atlanta, where his house and church are part of the National Park Service. We have travel books on Atlanta to plan your Civil Rights heritage trip or checkout our display of books and videos about Dr. Martin Luther King.

Check out our new DVD “King” which goes beyond the dream to discover the man. The History Channel with Tom Brokaw, takes viewers through the extraordinary life and times of America’s civil rights visionary. This documentary goes beyond the legend to portray the man, the questions and myths and his message in today’s world.
