Martin and Mahalia
MARTIN AND MAHALIA: HIS WORDS AND HER SONGS by Andrea Davis Pinkney with illustrations by Brian Pinkney. LBYR, 2013.
Two titans of the Civil Rights Movements are together in this lustrous book by Pinkney and Pinkney. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahalia Jackson both lent their voices during the struggle. The story moves back and forth between the two life stories and unites there at the Washington Monument. Here is a picture book which should be shared with readers of all ages. <614>
