Coretta Scott

Coretta Scott by Ntozake Shange, Kadir Nelson (Illustrator)
This extraordinary union of poetic text by Ntozake Shange and monumental artwork by Kadir Nelson captures the movement for civil rights in the United States and honors its most elegant inspiration, Coretta Scott.

Oh my, this clip is breathtaking! I will be using it in my high school classroom to illustrate the importance of ALLIES. On another note, how I wish that Coretta Scott King had lived to witness Michelle Robinson Obama embodying her very own version of black beauty, grace and courage... in the First Lady role. Cheers for history! And how road... leads on to road, to paraphrase Frost. With respect for your librarian-at-large work via this blog, EJS
