Honoring a King. It’s been 50 years since the tragic death of Martin Luther King Jr., who was assassinated on April 4, 1968, at the age of 39, and the civil rights leader’s life and legacy are explored in the new special issue, Martin Luther King Junior: The Hero Whose Dream Changed America.
The collector’s item takes an in-depth look at King’s legacy of peace, love, service and racial equality — a message that lives on today, decades after his death.
The special issue takes a look back at a nation that was torn apart by slavery and years of inequality and remembers the men and women who paved the way for King to build his legacy. The issue follows Dr. King’s journey as he changed the course of history. It features more than 150 rare personal photos of him and his life, tributes to King from world leaders, as well as his essential writings and speeches.
