Review:
This large format picture biography of Martin Luther King, Jr. focuses on King's resounding words, words that fueled the Equal Rights Movement and, after ten years of protests, ended legal segregation in the United States. Bryan Collier's forceful illustrations -- a combination of watercolor and cut paper collage -- give the reader/viewer an uncanny sense of Dr. King's charisma, and author Doreen Rappaport's well-chosen words are likely to inspire many listeners/viewers to learn more about King's life and his message of non-violence.
