About this product
- DescriptionSet against the racial turbulence of the Civil Rights Era, Dreamer is the first work of fiction to explore the life of Martin Luther King Jr - political visionary, human rights activist, preacher, scholar and martyr. Johnson's brilliantly realised historical vel deftly handles its material, weaving together a subtle and beautiful vel of immense power and importance. Dreamer is a multi-layered masterpiece.
