Martin & Mahalia: His Words, Her Song Andrea Davis Pinkney, Brian Pinkney, (Hachette/Little, Brown BYR)

“They were each born with the gift of gospel./Martin’s voice kept people in their seats, but also sent their praises soaring. /Mahalia’s voice was brass-and-butter – strong and smooth at the same time. /With Martin’s sermons and Mahalia’s songs, folks were free to shout, to sing their joy.”

Coretta Scott King winner Pinkney brings her storytelling voice to expressing the passion and commitment of two civil rights icons.
