Martin Luther King, Jr., is known to the world and to history as a great civil rights leader, but to his family he was just “M.L.” Now, editor Angela Farris Watkins, Ph.D., has brought his family together to celebrate his life and deeds in an intimate, personal way. King’s relatives—including his sister, nieces and nephews—have contributed brief reflections, charming childhood stories, emotionally unguarded essays and dozens of photographs from all stages of King’s life. Archival material from King’s late parents and brother round out this warm, loving, and delightfully small-scale portrait of a man whose passion for justice and commitment to nonviolence changed the nation. Share this amazing family’s stories with your own family.
“Our family is blessed to share our legacy as we honor our famous family member, Dr. MLK. We hope you will enjoy this inside view into the life of the man whose prayers and agape love impacted the world,” said Alveda who is a contributing author of the book. She is also Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life.
