Martin Luther King, Jr. | We've Got a Job

Today we remember a man who changed the course of a culture and country. He inspired the world and continues to inspire us to this day.




In remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr., we're hosting a giveaway of Cynthia Levinson's We've Got a Job: The 1963 Birmingham Children's March. Leave a comment with your email address and your favorite Martin Luther King, Jr. quote or fact. I'll pick a winner at random on Friday!


"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." 
- Martin Luther King, Jr.



Happy Reading everyone! And keep your eyes on the blog this May -- we'll be remembering the 50th anniversary of the children's march with a blog tour!

  2. Hi There,
    Sorry I had to delete my post, but apparently my favorite post is your favorite too! It's the one that you entered on this post.

    So here's my second favorite quote:

    "If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."

  3. A wonderful man and an equally wonderful book.
    My quote is one of the many from MLK Jr. about speaking out.
    "History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."
    Thank you for the giveaway honoring this great man.
