I think it’s safe to assume we all learned about Martin Luther King, Jr. at some point in our lives – in general. Here’s your chance to get really specific.

From being pulled into lead the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott to helping found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957, to his 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech to winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, to his efforts on ending poverty and opposing the Vietnam War in 1968, we follow King on his journey to become one of the most courageous and influential civil rights activists of our time. Standing up bravely to the injustices he saw all around him, King proved to a real-life superhero.
