This book incorporates third person interviews, newspaper articles, speeches, and narrative text - all in graphic novel format to paint a complex picture of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his impact on the Civil Rights Movement and on our country as a whole.


It addresses social studies themes such as: historical events; culture and cultural diversity; continuity and change among and between cultures; the powers and challenges of governance; and citizenship and civic ideals and practices.


NOTE: there are some mature scenes where infidelity is implied. (At no point is it disrespectful or explicit.) Awards include: Harvey Awards for Best New Talent (1991); Best Graphic Album (1993) and Parents' Choice Award (1995).
