Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Utilizing an inviting question-and-answer format, Carson presents an overview of Dr. King's life, endeavors, and beliefs, providing historical context with clear explanations of segregation and defining moments in the civil rights movement. Straightforward and accessible, the text is sprinkled with primary quotes and accompanied by sepia-toned paintings.” --School Library Journal
