BKLST: Martin Luther King Jr.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. This week’s book list is all about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the movement he helped inspire!

Love will see you through: Martin Luther King Jr.’s six guiding beliefs  as told by his niece by Angela Ferris Watkins


I used this book to help make a presentation at last year’s assembly and it is beautifully written and illustrated.  I don’t remember learning about six guiding beliefs as a child and I thought it was a great way to start conversation in my classroom.

March: Book Three by John Lewis


Rep. John Lewis’s third book in a graphic novel series about his life, covering his work co-founding the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, the Freedom Riders, counter sit-ins, and his march from Selma with Dr. King.  This series is one of my most popular in the library and is an incredible way to learn about US History.

We March by Shane Evans


Shane Evans’ created a beautiful picture book that describes the 1963 march on Washington.
