Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Martin Luther King Jr.andrsquo;s family comes together for the first time to share their reflections and memories of the great civil rights leader. Included are contributions from his sister (the only surviving member of his immediate family), his children, his in-laws, his nieces and nephews, and even his grandchildren, who, although they never met him, explain what his legacy means to them. Unlike the iconic persona normally associated with the man, the book presents a more personal, warm, and loving portrait: wrestling with his brother on the bed (despite their being in their thirties), sneaking naps during holiday meals, as well as playing games with his nieces and nephews. Alongside these tributes are never-before-published family photos of Dr. King, as well as new photographs of the memorial dedicated to him in August 2011 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Praise for Martin Luther King Jr.:

andldquo;In this large, handsome photo-essay filled with full-page portraits, family members across generations and a few close friends remember the man they knew as andlsquo;M. L.andrdquo; The combination of intimacy and politics will drive readers to find out more.andrdquo;andmdash;Booklist

Review:

"Valuable...worthy...King was consistently eloquent and polished, a master of word and effect, possessed of a voice that was unmistakeable and true." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Revealing...comprehensive...brings King's spirit to life, leaving us finally not with a larger-than-life icon, but with a man full of humor, humility, and honor." Ebony

Synopsis:

Using Stanford University's voluminous collection of archival material, including previously unpublished writings, interviews, recordings, and correspondence, King scholar Clayborne Carson has constructed a remarkable first-person account of Dr. King's extraordinary life.

Chris Lacy, January 17, 2010 (view all comments by Chris Lacy)
Minor tense changes turn a collection of Dr. King's writings and speeches into a nearly seemless narrative. Very informative and pleasant to read. Definitely a must-read for anyone interested in Nonviolence and Dr. King.
