Coretta Scott King Award Winners

Established in 1969, The Coretta Scott King Award is awarded to an African American author and an African American illustrator who commemorates the life and teachings of Martin Luther King Jr., and celebrates Coretta Scott King’s continued work. Here are a few of my favorite Coretta Scott King award winning books.
Enjoy!
