And that's just what he did. Dr. King became a minister like his father. He talked, prayed, and marched with his community. Politicians, policemen, and judges ordered him to stop, but Dr. King's message of racial tolerance and togetherness could not be silenced by threats of jail, violence, or even death.
The illustrations in this award-winning book have an openness that draws readers in, as the images seem almost to be lit from within. Excerpts from Dr. King's own speeches and letters enlarge the story, allowing readers to fully appreciate the impact of his immortal words.
This inspirational book recalls Dr. King's powerful ideas of love and freedom, and the words he used to sound the call for equality.
