Sorry for the delay in posting but I have also been doing a series of Oscar-related blogs on our family blog.
But back to business.
In light of Valentine’s Day, Black History Month and the fact that I just finished reading it, I thought it would be great to discuss Strength to Love by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I think this is one of the best portraits of the late Dr. King. I love the nearly-chiaroscuro lighting, the shadows receding from the light, and the black-and-white tones that underscore the moral admonishments contained within its pages.
It’s difficult to design covers for books like this, which could be considered like a sort of Social Justice meets Weight of Glory. But I think this one is pretty great overall.
As for quality of the book itself, I’d give it an 8/10. It really is a must-read.
