A Call to Conscience: The Landmark Speeches of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

by

A Call to Conscience: The Landmark Speeches of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

His speeches stirred a generation to change-and outlined a practical way to economic freedom and true democracy. His words would help bring about the end of a brutally unequal system-and would show a timeless method for achieving fairness and justice for all.

A Call to Conscience is a milestone collection of Dr. King's most influential and best-known speeches. Compiled by Stanford historian Dr. Clayborne Carson, director of the King Papers Project, and by contributing editor Kris Shepard, this volume takes you behind the scenes on an astonishing historical journey-from the small, crowded church in Montgomery, Alabama, where "The Birth of a New Nation" ignited the modern civil rights movement; to the center of the nation's capital, where "I Have a Dream" echoed through a nation's conscience; to the Mason Temple in Memphis, where over ten thousand people heard Dr. King give his last, transcendent speech, "I've Been to the Mountaintop" the night before his assassination. In twelve important introductions, some of the world's most renowned leaders and theologians-Andrew Young, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, and Mrs. Rosa Parks, among others-share with you their reflections on these speeches and give priceless firsthand testimony on the events that inspired their delivery.

Expressing a deeply felt faith in democracy, the power of loving change, and a self-deprecating humor, A Call to Conscience is Dr. King speaking today. It is a unique, unforgettable record of the words that rallied millions, forever changed the face of America, and even today shape our deepest personal hopes and dreams for the future.
