Martin Luther King Jr.

Graphic of Martin Luther King Jr.


"I have a dream..." are words that have resonated throughout our history since they were spoken at the Lincoln Memorial on that balmy August day in 1963.

While that speech is a popular reference to the man that we all know as Martin Luther King Jr., he also left a powerful impact on multiple fronts.

The Moorpark Library is proud to provide access to over a hundred resources of material relating to works generated by this iconic individual.

If you have any questions relating to access to these materials, please don't hesitate to Ask a Librarian.
