Publisher's Description

Walking many miles to school in the dusty road, young Coretta knew, too well, 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 and a journey—with dreams of freedom for all.

This extraordinary union of poetic text by Ntozake Shange and monumental artwork by Kadir Nelson captures the movement for civil rights in the United States and honors its most elegant inspiration, Coretta Scott.

He received Caldecott Honors for Henry's Freedom Box by Ellen Levine and Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom by Carole Boston Weatherford, for which he also garnered a Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award and won an NAACP Image Award. Ellington Was Not a Street by Ntozake Shange won a Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award.

Editorial Reviews

“Poetic language paired with powerful images make this biography/history of the Civil Rights Movement a moving, provacative read–aloud. Every library will want copies of this lyrical tribute to an elegant woman and the era she represents.”
“Nelson’s jacket portrait, monumental and tender at the same time, sets the tone for this intimate picture biography. Shange’s rhythmic lines and formal syntax roll like waves carrying readers on a soul–stirring ride through Coretta’s coming of age in the Civil Rights Movement.”
“Poet and painter have joined forces to offer an indelible, emotional expression of the strength, beauty, and joy of one woman’s character.”
