The Coretta Scott King Book Awards are given annually to outstanding African American authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults that demonstrate an appreciation of African American culture and universal human values. The award commemorates the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and honors his wife, Mrs. Coretta Scott King, for her courage and determination to continue the work for peace and world brotherhood.

 

The Coretta Scott King Book Awards Community is a part of the American’ Library Association’s Ethnic and Multicultural Information Exchange Round Table (EMIERT) and is administered by the CSK Executive Board.
