Martin Luther King and The Montgomery Story

Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story is a 1957 civil rights comic book begun just five months after Rosa Parks’ historic bus ride. The comic tells the epic tale of the Montgomery, AL bus boycott throughout the South.

A section called The Montgomery Method ( above) instructs readers on the nonviolent resistance techniques employed by civil rights workers in Alabama, with a primer on Gandhi and his influence on King.
