There's more than one way to make a difference. Spoken-word style prose evokes the lives of these two greats side-by-side. From their childhoods to the historic March on Washington, Pinkney's expressive art conveys the feeling of the times.

Strong rhythms and bold colours capture the powerful voices of two American civil rights leaders in this picture book biography of Martin Luther King, Jr. and singer Mahalia Jackson. Gospel music-infused language keeps things lively during the parallel stories of their lives and work, and the illustrations (cool blues for Martin and warm reds for Mahalia) keep their stories separate - until Martin and Mahalia meet, and their voices (as well as the illustrations) combine in a swirl of perfect, purple harmony.
