I've Seen the Promised Land
I’ve Seen the Promised Land: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by Walter Dean Meyers
A stunning picture book biography of the civil rights icon from the author of two Newbery Honor Books and six Coretta Scott King Awards. Set against key moments of the civil rights movement, here is the story of the powerful, eloquent spiritual leader and his belief that nonviolence could be used as a tool to begin to address racial discrimination.
Walter Dean Myers's moving narrative and Leonard Jenkins's compelling paintings convey a vivid and striking image of the man who moved American society closer to the ideals of freedom and fairness.
