Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A concise, engaging biography for young readers... A fine addition to easy-reading biography collections."

Booklist

"A readable account of the life of Coretta Scott King... this biography shows her to be a courageous woman who can stand on her own merit, and not just as the wife of one of the world's most well-known men."

School Library Journal

From her childhood encounters with discrimination to her activism as an adult, Coretta Scott King dreamed of finding a place where people were treated equally. This compelling biography tells how she joined her husband, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. to lead protest marches and stand up to prejudice and violence.

Synopsis:

Walking many miles to school in the dusty road, young Coretta Scott knew the unfairness of life in the segregated south. A yearning for equality began to grow. Together with Martin Luther King, Jr., she gave birth to a vision of change through nonviolent protest. It was the beginning of a journey—with dreams of freedom for all.
