Martin Luther King Jr came from a family of preachers so it was perhaps inevitable that he too would one day become a great preacher. However, his life changed forever when, one day, a friend invited him to play at his house but his mother wouldn’t let him in because he was black. That day he realized there was something terribly unfair going on and he promised himself that when he grew up he’d fight injustice with the most powerful weapon of all: words.
