"Does the dream of Martin Luther King live on? Yes, says the narrator of this resonant picture book, which uses the peculiar logic of dreams to take the reader beyond straight biography into a more personal, heartfelt interpretation of King's legacy."--Publishers Weekly, starred review"Ringgold's pictures are strong and powerful--there is an intensity to this that will affect readers."--Booklist (boxed review) "Ringgold gives her scenes a simple, direct, childlike look--This is her most accessible work since Tar Beach."--Kirkus Reviews (pointer review) About the Author:
Faith Ringgold was born in Harlem, but now divides her time between New Jersey and La Jolla, California. She is a professor of fine art at the University of California at San Diego, where she teaches for half of the year.
