Summary, etc.:
Marching for freedom! Even as a young boy, Martin Luther King, Jr., showed remarkable promise. Everyone who knew him thought he would grow up to be someone special. But nobody could have guessed that the bright, inquisitive little boy was going to lead the movement that changed America, or that he would win many of the greatest prizes the world can offer - including the greatest prize, new freedom and respect for his people. But the path for Martin was full of difficulty and sometimes tragedy as he tried to make a nation understand that freedom is truly real only when everyone is free. His story and his message are for every American.--Back cover
