My Dream of Martin Luther King

My Dream of Martin Luther King

In My Dream of Martin Luther King, Faith Ringgold brings her unique artistic sensibility to the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the history of the Civil Rights movement.

Narrating the book in her own voice, Ms. Ringgold describes a dream she has about Martin Luther King. It's a dream that includes scenes of segregation and protest--which, in a brilliant leap of imagination, she imagines King experiencing as a child--and scenes from King's adult life, from the Montgomery bus boycott to the March on Washington to his assassination. Framing this dream is a uniquely personal vision of Ms. Ringgold's own in which she visualizes the people of the world gathering in King's memory to trade in their prejudice, fear, and hate for hope, peace, and love--the fulfillment of King's dream of nonviolent social change.
