Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-Rhodes covers little-known incidents in her subject's life as well as her better-known roles as speaker, singer, supporter of the holiday honoring her slain husband, and founder of the King Memorial Center. This is a mainly positive account but the author does mention the controversy surrounding King's actions in carefully guarding her husband's writings and speeches and her request for a new trial for the now-deceased James Earl Ray. King is portrayed as a committed and courageous person who has continued to fight for justice. The chapters are well organized and the clear, well-chosen black-and-white photographs are attractively presented.-Janet Woodward, Garfield High School, Seattle, WA
