Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me 'Round: My Story of the Making of Martin Luther King Day

This brilliant memoir-in-verse tells the moving story of how a nation learned to celebrate a hero. Kathlyn J. Kirkwood recounts how, drawn to activism from childhood, she went from attending protests as a teenager to fighting for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday to become a national holiday as an adult. A blueprint for kids starting down their own paths to civic awareness, it shows life beyond protests and details the sustained time, passion, and energy it takes to turn an idea into a law.

In addition to its powerful story of the Civil Rights struggle, Kathlyn's story highlights the foot soldiers who fought to make Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday a national holiday. Deftly weaving together monumental historical events with a heartfelt coming-of-age story and in-depth information on law making, Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me ’Round is the perfect engaging example of how history can help inform the present.
