In this picture-book biography, Martin Luther King's older sister describes the influence of the King family members and friends on Martin. From their father's church sermons and his actions when confronting hatred and bigotry, the children learned the importance of standing up for justice and equality. As a seven-year-old, the young boy embarked on a journey that would change the course of American history. An afterword adds context and personalizes the book.
