APA Citation: King, M. L. (2010). Strength to love. Cleaveland, OH: Fotress Press, Gift Ed.
Reference: Biography
Call Number: Ref 834 Kin
Relevance & Relationship: Cost $20.00, but can be found at a better price. Our high school has many diverse history classes including a History of African American Culture. This book would be a great addition for a U.S. History class. This is not a duplicate and there are no other reference books about MLK Jr.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to demonstrate Civil Rights activism in a non-violent way while also highlighting the life and acheivements of Martin Luther King Jr. This book is designed for high school students and fits in nicely with the U.S. History and African American Culture studies curriculum.
Validity: Although this book was originally written in the 1960's the message still resonates and is applicable to today's generation. All customer reviews on Amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com are at least 4/5 stars.
Format: This bibliography is found in print with many quotations from Martin Luther King Jr. No pictures are included except for the front copy.
Arrangement and Presentation: Because this is more of a book written about Martin Luther King Jr. and his struggles there is not an index or glossary. There is a table of contents that serves as a reference point.
Diversity: This book does offer a culturally diverse perspective, especially for a library who caters to only 6% African American population.
