KIWI Magazine Review: As Good as Anybody Paperback by Richard Michelson

This story was one I had heard, but this wonderful book tells of the historical relationship of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Joshua Heschel. Their famous friendship brought African-Americans and Jewish Americans together to work for equal rights for all. The illustrations are colorful and detailed, and the text is suitable for all ages.

 

MARTIN LUTHER KING, Jr. and Abraham Joshua Heschel. Their names stand for the quest for justice and equality.Martin grew up in a loving family in the American South, at a time when this country was plagued by racial discrimination. He aimed to put a stop to it. He became a minister like his daddy, and he preached and marched for his cause.Abraham grew up in a loving family many years earlier, in a Europe that did not welcome Jews. He found a new home in America, where he became a respected rabbi like his father, carrying a message of peace and acceptance.Here is the story of two icons for social justice, how they formed a remarkable friendship and turned their personal experiences of discrimination into a message of love and equality for all.
