For over 50 years, the Coretta Scott King Book Awards have recognized the works of outstanding African American authors and illustrators that celebrate African American life and culture. The award is named for Mrs. Coretta Scott King, wife and partner of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Her focus on peace, love, and social change made her one of the most prominent African American and women leaders of our time. We celebrate this prestigious award with a week-long event filled with creative activities.
