Product Description:

This eye-opening story book shows the reality faced by African Americans in the United States before the 1970’s. Told from the viewpoint of Angela Watkins, Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, the pictures and storyline show what Martin saw wrong with how he and other African Americans were being treated, and what he did to make others aware of the problem while offering peaceful solutions. The story also explains how people responded to his propositions. This story reveals how injustices can be corrected with love and brotherly kindness, rather than hate and violence. The back of the book also features a timeline of Martin’s protests vs the time it took to expand Civil Rights, as well as a glossary of selected words used in the story with their definitions. 38 pgs, pb. ~ Brianna
