Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

A patron put us to the test to see if we could locate any pictures or articles we could find in our microfilm collection about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Talk about a treasure hunt! We thought it would be great to share a few of the pictures we found with you!
"Advice For Living" was a monthly advice column in Ebony magazine from 1957-1958.

The King Center, located in Atlanta, GA, is the largest repository of primary material related to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. They have an online archive of documents available for browsing. For more glimpses into the life of this great civil rights leader check out the National Geographic Kids and Time photo galleries!
