What weabout it
Meet Marting Luther King, Jr., before he was the reverend, but when he already had a thirst for words and a strong sense of injustice.


When he was a very young boy, Martin Luther King Jr. told his parents, “When I grow up, I’m going to get me some big words.”

He also was a clumsy youth who faced a lot of falls and bumps. Of course, he also faced discrimination. His first best friend was the white boy across the street, whose father wouldn’t let them play after the two reached school age and attended separate schools according to their race.

This fast-paced overview of his life includes sides of MLK Jr. few of us have seen, shedding fresh light on the celebrated Civil Rights leader.
