Uncertain what to do next, Elizabeth invites her husband and son to attend a nearby church service to hear the visiting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. give a sermon on his speaking tour. When I first began plotting this page, I thought of the Kraushaar listening to a local church pastor speak. Then I thought, “No, this is 1959, I will use a young Dr. King visit them to offer encouraging words!”
I had so much fun watching and listening to speeches of MLK to prepare myself to try and write his dialogue in such a way as to appear like he would have spoken, with the content meant to apply to the Kraushaar family’s predicament! So, enjoy Dr. King’s sermon of wisdom….in the next page, we will discover to what effect his speech has on the Kraushaar family!
