" 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)
