KIRKUS REVIEW

The pictures are photographs; a big plus to begin with and especially in the case of Dr. King whose activities have been dramatic and diversified and well documented. Here his early puzzlement at restrictions on the Negro, his first struggles in Montgomery and his later wide-ranging efforts to achieve equality for his people fit easily into the framework of his life--or vice versa, and the photographs add immediacy. The text, on the Let's Find Out About level, is somewhat more direct and less stilted than usual. And it says what it means. It approximates a capsule history of the civil rights movement, and Negro neighborhoods will want to consider multiples.
