Abstract:

The author recounts the life of Martin Luther King in the form of her own dream. Illustrated in full color. Through the author's dream, key events in the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., are recalled in this picture book, which also explains the impact of his life on humanity. The acclaimed author/illustrator of the Caldecott Honor Book Tar Beach recounts her unique vision of Martin Luther King, Jr. by describing a dream she had about the great civil rights leader. The dream includes scenes of King's childhood and the major events of his life, from the boycott of the segregated buses to his "I Have a Dream" speech to his assassination. Illustrated in Ringgold's signature folk-art style, the text includes the author's own personal vision, in which she imagines the people of the world gathering in King's memory to trade prejudice, fear, and hate for hope, peace, and love.
