Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-10-- An outstanding book that examines King's life and achievements. Haskins focuses on the impact of the civil rights movement and the beliefs that King so eloquently espoused. Information about his family, schooling, and civil-rights activities are conveyed in a lively and engaging manner. Inserted at various points throughout the text are excerpts from speeches, letters, or commentaries. They are positioned in gray boxes, and enable readers to see King's perspective on a particular course of action. The many black-and-white photographs are attractively arranged and often compelling. In addition to photographs directly related to King, there are others that convey the mood of the country struggling to come to terms with the yoke of segregation. A touching introduction Rosa Parks and concluding source notes supplement the book. All in all, this biography provides a balanced portrait of Dr. King, and it clearly portrays his impact on history. --Jeanette Lambert, Nashville Metropolitan Schools, TN

From Kirkus Reviews

Yet another King biography, this one lifted above the ordinary by the passion and dignity of King's own rhetoric--extensive quotations from books, speeches, and letters worked into Haskins's spare narrative of King's family history, life events, and beliefs. The b&w photos that occupy more than one-third of the book are carefully juxtaposed with the appropriate text; a number of their captions also contain quotes. Though many of the photos are familiar, the 8 1/2'' x 11'' format and the quality of paper and reproduction here give them renewed impact. Not a source for those wishing to delve into the complexities of events or character, but an excellent verbal and visual presentation of the essentials of King's life and times. A memoir by Rosa Parks serves as introduction. Chronology; bibliographies; sources of pictures and quotations; index. (Biography. 10+) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.
