Two Brothers and M.L. posted on

This is 1 of 2 Stories Honoring Black History Month and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Have you ever had your parents say that you could never again play with one of your friends? That is what really occurred many years ago in 1935. It happened to a six-year-old boy who later became very famous. Read on and see if you can guess who it is.

This historical fiction story highlights words spoken to M.L. by his mother and the mother of his two best friends. The conversations between the white mother and her sons and the reactions of the white boys are a product of the author’s imagination.
