Mrs. Farris, older sister of the slain civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., reads from her book My Brother Martin, published by Simon and Schuster. The book is intended for young readers who may view Dr. King as a larger than life icon. Mrs. Farris informs the children in the audience that before he became a world-famous civil rights activist, Martin Luther King, Jr., called “ML” by the family, was a little boy who played practical jokes and made friends with children of all races. But growing up in the segregated South of the 1920s taught “ML” that white children and black children were not supposed to play together. Mrs. Farris' book focuses on a key moment in their childhood in Atlanta when “ML” realized his calling in life. Mrs. Farris answers questions from the audience after her reading. close
