Many books have been written about the life and contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His niece, Angela Farris Watkins, has provided an insider's perspective of the power of his words and his works. This book is a great primer on the impact that MLK had on working for civil rights. Eric Velasquez's powerful illustrations perfectly suit the simple yet strong text. In addition, the book includes an extensive glossary and bibliography, as well as a chart that tracks the changes resulting directly from his non-violent protests. This book would be a wonderful companion to Martin's Book Words.
