Martin Rising: Requiem for a King


Brian Pinkney’s lyrical and colorful artwork, alongside this poetic requiem describing the last few months of Martin Luther King’s life, bring a fresh perspective to the peace loving activist whose dream of equality — and whose courage to make it happen —  changed the course of American history.
