Summary
Christine King Farris, the only sister of Dr. Martin L. King, Jr., is the surviving member of the family that together stood for the rights of all Americans at the forefront of the civil rights movement. They come from a long line of African Americans in the South who combined education and conviction not only to survive against the odds but to make life better for themselves and those around them, especially the poor. She offers a rare opportunity to learn more about the man behind the myth. The revelatory glimpses into her childhood with Dr. King are heartwarming. Her memories of, and insight into, her family's early years, including the brutal murder of their mother in church and the drowning of their youngest brother, are startling. Ms. Farris has led a fascinating life in her own right as a wife and mother, activist, and career educator at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia.--From publisher description
