The Autobiography Of Martin Luther King, Jr Summary

The Autobiography Of Martin Luther King, Jr by Martin Luther King Jr

With knowledge, spirit, good humour and passion, The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr brings to life a remarkable man whose thoughts and actions speak to our most burning contemporary issues and still inspire the desires, hopes and dreams of us all.

Written in his own words, this history-making autobiography is Martin Luther King: the mild-mannered, inquisitive child and student who rebelled against segregation; the dedicated young minister who constantly questioned the depths of his faith and the limits of his wisdom; the loving husband and father who sought to balance his family's needs with those of a growing nationwide movement; and the reflective, world-famous leader who was fired by a vision of equality for people everywhere.

Relevant and insightful, this autobiography offers King's seldom discussed views on some of the world's greatest and most controversial figures including John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Mahatma Gandhi and Richard Nixon. It also paints a rich and moving portrait of a people, a time and a nation in the face of powerful change. Finally, it shows how everyday Americans from all walks of life confronted themselves, each other and the burden of the past - and how their fears and courage helped shape our future.
