About this product
- DescriptionDuring a public career spanning only twelve years, Martin Luther King, Jr., transformed the South - and the nation - and reinvigorated American democracy. From the pulpit and from jail, he inspired African Americans to rebel against white supremacy, nviolently defying racism, bigotry, and brutality. He also sought a better way of life for all poor and powerless people, black and white alike. In this concise and readable biography, Adam Fairclough chronicles the major events of King's life and assesses his achievements as the preeminent leader of the civil rights movement. Throughout, Fairclough charts the major stages of King's philosophical and political growth, examining his opposition to the Vietnam War, his response to Black Power, and his growing concern for ecomic justice. Fairclough rounds out his portrait with an assessment of King's legacy to America and his continuing relevance to the struggle throughout the world for freedom and equality.
