Kerri's book Pick of the Week is "Martin & Mahalia: His Words, Her Song," a picture book about Martin Luther King and Mahalia Jackson. The book is written by Andrea Davis Pinkney and illustrated by Brian Pinkney.
From Kirkus Reviews:
From its opening poem, "You Are Here," printed on a simple watercolor map of a road, to its backmatter about the history and art behind the story, this historical account of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. and spiritual contralto vocalist Mahalia Jackson delivers inspiration and information equally. Focusing on the gift that each had for gospel, Andrea Davis Pinkney emphasizes the vocal and musical talents that each gained through the church as young people.
