They seem to be from different worlds, different lifetimes, but they were born the same year: 1929. Across the ocean, they faced similar racial hatreds and reacted to that hate with words of love, reaching out to build understanding rather than divisiveness. Martin & Anne tells their inspiring stories, encouraging all of us to choose kindness whenever we can.
"Churnin has reached into the past and pulled out amazing connections between two of the most celebrated figures of the twentieth century... Born the same year and treated as inferior due to their race, both Martin and Anne dreamed of a world where equality and justice prevailed. By using key events from their lives to show the forces arrayed against them, the author makes the resilience and positive outlook of both figures even more evident." — School Library Journal
