Review

Poet and painter have joined forces to offer an indelible, emotional expression of the strength, beauty, and joy of one woman s character. --Booklist (starred review)"

Poetic language paired with powerful images make this biography/history of the Civil Rights Movement a moving, provacative read aloud. Every library will want copies of this lyrical tribute to an elegant woman and the era she represents. --School Library Journal (starred review)"

Nelson s jacket portrait, monumental and tender at the same time, sets the tone for this intimate picture biography. Shange s rhythmic lines and formal syntax roll like waves carrying readers on a soul stirring ride through Coretta s coming of age in the Civil Rights Movement. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

4.0 out of 5 stars Coretta Scott 26 Jan. 2013

The purpose of this book being purchased was for my girls to form a connection with the past history and tie it into the now. This book was awesome the illustrations was fascinating, as well as the poetry.

However, this day and time I feel the word chose of N*** could have been substituted. Although it is history. I felt offended.
arrival was great

I purchased this book for a little friend of mine, who found the same book in our local library. She really wanted it to call it her own. When she received it she was elated, I'm glad that I was able to give her, her first book to ever have.
