We have been reading books that are illustrated by one of our favorite illustrators--Kadir Nelson. My children have always enjoyed his real to life pictures and coloring of people. Today's book is Coretta Scott written by Ntozake Shange and illustrated by Kadir Nelson.
It's the story of Coretta Scott.
The story begins with her as a young child.
As she is in school, she meets Martin Luther King, Jr. and they become fast friends.
Coretta was just as much involved with the Civil Rights Movement as her husband.
I liked how the emphasis was put on Coretta in this book. She believed and fought for the same things her husband, Martin, did. When he died, she spent her life continuing to seek justice for all.
