Picks by the MLK Coalition
Each year the MLK Coalition generously donates part of the funds raised during the event for purchasing books about King and the civil rights movement. They also include an annual list of resources for all ages – this year curated around the theme of "Love, Power, Justice." Resource lists from past years are available at MLKCoalition.org.
