Author and mentor’s children’s picture book is powerful history lesson
CHEYENNE, WYO., USA, June 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Moses D. Powe, the noted author, today announced the publication of his second book, “Sean Moses is Martin Luther, The King Jr.” The children’s picture book tells the story of a young man asked to portray Martin Luther King Jr. for his school’s Black History Month Program.
The book tells the story of Sean Moses, based on the author’s son, and his real-life experiences portraying various Black leaders as a student in public schools. In the book, Sean Moses is asked to portray Martin Luther King Jr., or as he likes to call him, “Martin Luther the king.” As the story unfolds, no matter how hard Sean Moses’ parents try to correct him, he explains why he is right to call the civil rights leader a “king.”
This book is an opportunity to remind loved ones how they are, indeed, descended from royalty. It offers young readers a story about an incredible young man who is full of heart. The story also introduces a group of distinguished Black leaders, including Frederick Douglass, Barack Obama, Thurgood Marshall, Sgt. William Carney, W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X and “The King” Martin Luther King Jr.
“You can enjoy this story with little ones,” said Powe. “Share a rich history in an entertaining new way and open a conversation with your children about the power of Black culture. This is going to be a history lesson like none you’ve ever experienced. The book is ideal for readers ages nine and younger, so parents are encouraged to request that their local libraries and school libraries carry the title.”
