Marching to the Mountaintop

Bausum,  Ann.  Marching to the Mountaintop. National Geographic, 2012. Dr. King's final campaign connected issues of civil rights, poverty, and of labor and unionization. On week eight of the Memphis sanitation workers' strike, King arrived and galvanized the city. Less than 24 hours later he was assassinated. This book covers the complex story of the brave men and women of Memphis and their struggle for justice. It also gives a profoundly human story of Dr. King at his most discouraged and most powerful. Honor book for older children, 2013.
