Thank You, Dr. Martin Luther King, JR.!by Eleanora E. Tate
Mary Elouise is dying to be in the school play, but the part she gets is the last one she wants narrator of the Black History skit. Even though her grandmother, Big Momma, says it's important to remember her heritage, Mary Elouise hates being reminded about slavery and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. She'd rather be in the skit about presidents with Brandy, the girl in her class with beautiful blond hair. Then one day, two storytellers come to school with glorious tales of Africa... and a new way for Mary Elouise to see herself and her heritage.
