What was it like growing up as a son of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.? 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.

Glad I Purchased This Book!

I bought this book to listen to with my daughter, and I'm so glad I purchased it! The book is short and focuses on the daddy that Martin Luther King Jr. was, to his son. It is always important to connect with your children, regardless of what your other responsibilities are. Tomorrow is not promised, and children will remember who you were OR were not, to them, after you are gone. Thank you, sir, for sharing the memories of your father with us!!
