This is a story about Martin Luther King Jr. told from the perspective of his older sister. The book shows a different side of Martin that many people don't mention. The book tells the life of Martin from a baby to a grown man. His sister highlights instances in his childhood that helped shape him into the man he became. This would be an excellent story to use with students when talking about civil rights and differences.
