In the tradition of her award-winning book Maritcha, Tonya Bolden brings words and pictures together to tell the life story of one of America’s greatest figures: Martin Luther King, Jr. - or M.L.K. Central to the story is King’s belief that agape - the selfless love for one’s neighbor - is the rope that binds all peoples together. This philosophy came forward in his sermons, in his daily practice, and especially in his support of nonviolent protests. More than 80 photographs of M.L.K. preaching, leading marches, being arrested, and overcoming the violence and prejudice around him are juxtaposed with images of his wife and family, of his fellow protesters, and of other leaders of the day. A tribute to a great human being, M.L.K. will surely inspire young readers.
