Book Recommendations To Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day| 2022

Welcome back to Lamon Reviews. Today we have several articles with wonderful book recommendations for adults, young adults, and children to read while celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The first book that I recommend is going to be Letter From The Birmingham Jail by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I feel that this book will help readers understand the man we are celebrating by having an interesting and detailed look into his life in this particular time.


“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

Reverand Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Below are two articles that have books for younger readers about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

I really enjoyed the descriptions of all the books on this next list and will be adding several to my tbr. Spacifically friday black by nana kwame adjei-brenyah and Heads Of The Colored People by Nafissa Thompson-Spires.

After reading the article, I went over to Google Books and took advantage of the preview option and read the first short story and loved it. I have quite a wait to read this collection of short stories, but while in my libraries digital archives, I grabbed another book that I think will be just as promising, How Long ’til Black Future Month by N.K. Jemisin.
