Wide sea, small boat: Marian Wright Edelman looks ahead

Marian Wright Edelman, president of the Children’s Defense Fund, has released a new book, “The Sea Is So Wide and My Boat Is So Small: Charting a Course for the Next Generation.” It’s a series of letters — to educators, faith leaders, young people, mothers, elected officials, and concerned citizens — that reflects on America’s social and economic progress, as well as its setbacks, since the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., in 1968. Writes Edelman: “We now have the opportunity and awesome responsibility to compose and play the next movement of America’s symphony of freedom and justice. I hope that through this book our nation is motivated to take on this challenge and step forward for all children.”
