Happy Birthday Dr. King!

Fourth-grader Jamal got in trouble with the principal for fighting with another boy over the backseat of the school bus. When Grandpa Joe finds out, he sits Jamal down to tell him about a time when black boys could only sit at the back of the bus and how Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. fought to change things with the Montgomery Bus Boycott. A glossary and selected historical photographs are included.
