    Written as though King himself had chosen every word, this gives much needed insight into key phases of King s life, the Civil Rights struggle and his tremendous speeches My greater understanding of the issues are thanks to this book King s eloquence inhabits every word, extracting through vivid imagery, emotional responses King was a great man who accomplished great things This book is a fitting testimony.

    Very good book I became fascinated by Martin Luther King after visiting his memorial in Washington DC and standing on the spot where he did his famous speech to the nation This book is a very good read and so easy to digest and understand Passed it onto my teenage son who is equally fascinated.

    Interesting to see the upper middle class background he comes from, but also how many people suffered tremendously during the civil rights fight A superbly compiled account that reads as if MLK had done it himself effectively it is his own words Some bits drag, but on the whole it enlightened me regarding the practicalities of passive resistance and direct action, and I shed the odd tear whilst reading it A classic book which is a must read for anyone interested in the civil rights movement or civil rights in general.

  6. Customer Customer says:

    I have read and followed the whole question of the emancipation of slavery and the civil rights movement Martin Luther King was a huge figure in the civil rights movement that struck a chord in the hearts of both the back and white of America and the world as a whole His speeches were second to none for raising the hopes of many I thoroughly recommend this book.
