The award, commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and honoring his widow, Coretta Scott King, honors African American writers and illustrators and celebrates the African American experience through artistic expression. It is presented annually by the Coretta Scott King Task Force of the American Library Association's Social Responsibilities Round Table.
