Martin Luther King was brought up in a family of pastors. One day, a friend invited him to play at his house, but the boy's mother refused to let Martin in because of the color of his skin. He then realized that something was wrong. He vowed that when he grew up he would fight injustices, and that he would do so with the most formidable weapon: words. Today, his name is associated with the birth of the great anti-racial segregation movement in the United States.
