Gr 4-8-This compact biography emphasizes King's career as a Baptist minister as well as a civil-rights activist. Even the first chapter, which summarizes his early years, stresses those aspects of the subject's life that helped him become a reverend. The clearly written, chronologically organized text provides an accurate account of Dr. King's life and work. Small, darkly reproduced black-and-white photographs are interspersed throughout. A straightforward and informative section on "How to Become a Minister" is appended, along with Web sites on ministerial careers and one on materials and places to visit related to Dr. King.-Eunice Weech, M.
