Publisher Comments:

In this inspirational story about Martin Luther King Jr.and#8212;told from the perspective of his niece Angela Farris Watkinsand#8212;readers learn how King used his message of love and peace to effectively fight for African Americansand#8217; civil rights.

Focusing on important words and phrases from his speeches, such as justice, freedom, and equality, Watkins uses Kingand#8217;s language to expose young readers to important events during the civil rights era. The simple yet striking text, along with a timeline and glossary, makes this book an accessible tool for helping a young audience learn about the importance of Martin Luther King Jr.and#8217;s message of nonviolence and his contributions to American history.

Synopsis:

"Mother Dear, one day I'm going to turn this world upside down."

Long before he became a world-famous dreamer, Martin Luther King Jr. was a little boy who played jokes and practiced the piano and made friends without considering race. But growing up in the segregated south of the 1930s taught young Martin a bitter lesson — little white children and little black children were not to play with one another. Martin decided then and there that something had to be done. And so he began the journey that would change the course of American history.
