Rated 5 out of 5 by from For a school book fair i loved it! Great illustration and written very well... I think this book was to the point and spoke about not only specific events but the day to day lives of african americans not only Martain Luther King this book taught me alot about the struggles, hopes and dreams of the ones who us whites thought we were better. This book is great especially when read around Febuary (which is Black History Month) I highly recomend this book to people of all colours, races and ages 9 and up. (because it has some killing, but it also depends on the maturinty level)
