Tonya Bolden does an amazing job of bringing both words and pictures together to tell the story of Martin Luther King, Jr., or “M.L.” as she refers to him in the book. The text is not textbook text, but tells a story in a fascinating way that pulls the reader in. The pictures are beautiful black and white photographs, and each captures more than words could ever say. This book has more than 80 photographs of M.L.K. preaching, leading marches, being arrested, and overcoming the violence and prejudice around him that are mixed with images of his wife and family, of his fellow protestors, and of other leaders during his time. M.L.K.: Journey of a King is an incredible tribute to a remarkable human being. I really enjoyed that this book was much more than M.L.K.'s "I Have a Dream" speech that we learn about in our education. It was him and his life and everything going on around him. This book has impacted my life.
