Publisher's Description

Through It All, a unique, intimate portrait of the Kings, one of America’s most extraordinary families, is written as only a beloved elder sibling of Dr. Martin L. King, Jr., could — with insight, tenderness, and wisdom.

 

Christine King Farris, the only sister of one of America's most internationally celebrated leaders, is the surviving member of the family that stood at the forefront of the civil rights movement. The Kings came from a long line of African Americans in the South who combined education and conviction, not only to survive against the odds , but to make life better for themselves and those around them, especially the poor.

 

Farris offers a rare opportunity to learn about the man behind the myth. As she describe, Martin Luther King was "no saint, ordained as such at birth. Instead, he was an average ordinary man, called by a God, in whom he had a deep and abiding faith, to perform extraordinary deeds." Through heartwarming revelatory glimpses into her childhood with Dr. King and startling early memories of her familyincluding the brutal murder of their mother in church and the drowning of their youngest brotherFarris opens the door into her life, her family, and the faith that allows her, in her ninth decade, to still stand for all the principles that make America great.
