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.

Review quote

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 soulstirring ride through Coretta s coming of age in the Civil Rights Movement. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
