Renowned educator Christine King Farris, older sister of the late Dr. King, recalls the birth of her two younger brothers and reflects on life in the King household from the vantage point of an older sibling. Using simple language, she describes race relations in the South during her childhood, shares the lessons that the King children learned from their family about standing up for justice and equality, and sets the stage for the historic journey that her brother would embark upon in the years to come.
