More About Martin Luther King Jr. by Angela Farris Watkins; Andrew Young
 
 
 
Overview
Martin Luther King Jr.'s family comes together for the first time to share their reflections and memories of the great civil rights leader. Included are contributions from his sister (the only surviving member of his immediate family), his children, his in-laws, his nieces and nephews, and even his grandchildren, who, although they never met him, explain what his legacy means to them. Unlike the iconic persona normally associated with the man, the book presents a more personal, warm, and loving portrait: wrestling with his brother on the bed (despite their being in their thirties), sneaking naps during holiday meals, as well as playing games with his nieces and nephews. Alongside these tributes are never-before-published family photos of Dr. King, as well as new photographs of the memorial dedicated to him in August 2011 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Praise for Martin Luther King Jr.

"In this large, handsome photo-essay filled with full-page portraits, family members across generations and a few close friends remember the man they knew as 'M. L." The combination of intimacy and politics will drive readers to find out more."--Booklist
