The truth of what he lived and preached.
During the 1960s, Martin Luther King Jr. was jailed, beaten, and eventually killed for his leadership in the civil-rights movement. His nonviolent approach to change, his perseverance in the face of defeat, and his ability to inspire people with a dream of equality are still widely discussed and remembered today. In today s lesson, Philip Yancey examines the deadly roots of racism and the legacy of King.
