Award Books - Coretta Scott King Award, Instructional Materials Center
The Coretta Scott King Book Awards, are "designed to commemorate the life and works of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and to honor Mrs. Coretta Scott King for her courage and determination to continue the work for peace, The Coretta Scott King Book Awards annually recognize outstanding books for young adults and children by African American authors and illustrators that reflect the African American experience. Further, the Award encourages the artistic expression of the black experience via literature and the graphic arts in biographical, social, and historical treatments by African American authors and illustrators." http://www.ala.org/awardsgrants/coretta-scott-king-book-awards
Only items with a blue background for Winner or Yellow background for Honor book AND
call number listed are available in this library. The author or illustrator responsible for the
award is also highlighted when the book is available.
Separate awards are given by the Coretta Scott King Book Awards for the Author and
for the Illustrator, so a book may win in one category and also be awarded an honor award
in the other; therefore it may be listed twice in the same year (or win/win honor/honor).
