Martin's big words: Using quotes from some of his beloved speeches, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. comes to life in this profound and important biography about beliefs and dreams and following one's heart. John Henry: Based on the famous African-American folk ballad, this story tells of the legendary contest between a spirited man with a hammer and a steam drill to build a tunnel through the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia. Seven candles for Kwanzaa: This unique African-American holiday commemorates the strength of family ties, respect for ancestors, commitment to the growth of community and gratitude for life's bounties.
