"A fine introduction to the life of King--lucid, real, captivating. Bray starts with King's early years in the American South, his exposure to segregation and racism, his schooling, and his family life before detailing his civil rights experiences. In direct, punchy writing, Bray makes understandable the broadening of King's political work to include his antiwar activity and his war on poverty....Zeldis's folk art, gouache primitives, are bright eye-catchers....She and Bray breathe new life into King's story and into the details of the civil rights movement as well."--Kirkus Reviews.
