Coretta Scott

The celebrated poetry of Ntozake Shange and the beautiful illustrations of Kadir Nelson captures the spirit of the civil rights era.

"Walking many miles to school in the dusty road, young Coretta Scott knew 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 of change through nonviolent protest. It was the beginning of a journey—with dreams of freedom for all."
