This memoir by Martin Luther King III provides insight into one of history's most fascinating families and into a special bond between father and son. "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Martin Luther King III was one of those four little children mentioned in Martin Luther King's groundbreaking "I Have a Dream" speech. In this memoir, Martin Luther King Jr.'s son gives an intimate look at the man and the father behind the civil rights leader. Mr. King's remembrances show both his warm, loving family and a momentous time in American history. Members Reviews: Touching and compelling My children and I enjoyed this intimate biography of MLK written by his son. It shows what the fight for justice was like from a child's point of view at the time, and the portrayal of MLK is loving and touching. This is a great way to teach social justice to children in a non-scary way. I got it because my daughter had learned about MLK in school and was impressed by what she learned, but I was surprised that in school they had NOT mentioned that he was assassinated! This book does mention that part, but again, in a non-scary way that I appreciate. "I was so young when my dad died, but I'm blessed with the memory of a warm and playful man." Everyone should be so lucky as to have experienced this kind of parent-child relationship. and I wondered what it was like being named after such a loved and hated important ... While reading about the legendary Civil Rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. my daughter and I learned that his oldest son was named after him, Martin Luther King III, and I wondered what it was like being named after such a loved and hated important man of history. This book gave me some insight to that question and was also extremely touching. Iâm sure if his father could read this he would be bursting with pride. A fantastic edition to any elementary school library or classroom. Kristi's Book Nook Having a famous dad during a time of protest and unrest couldnât have been easy for a young boy growing up in the south. But, Martin Luther King III, or Marty as he was called so not to be confused with his famous dad, learned to be unafraid and stand tall. He was afraid every time his dad was arrested or went to march. When his dad was home he was just that, dad. Marty learned that nonviolence was the best way to help so many people. Readers are invited into the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through the eyes of his son. Readers can learn about the marches and the cause that reached across a nation. Parents and teachers can use this as a tool to talk about the Civil Rights movement, life in the south and family values. I think this is a great gift idea and it went over well with his ...
