Synopsis-
  • The inspiring, never-before-published autobiography of the world's greatest civil rights leader--constructed from his writings, correspondence, and interviews, many of them never before made public.
Reviews-
  • New York Times Book Review "Valuable . . . worthy . . . King was consistently eloquent and polished, a master of word and effect, possessed of a voice that was unmistakable and true."
  • Ebony "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."
  • The New Yorker "Exceptionally successful . . . illuminates the intellectual underpinnings of King's courage."
  • Library Journal "Highest recommendation . . . compelling . . . Carson creates an eloquent and expressive narrative [and] lets MLK's distinct first-person perspective resonate through the book."
  • Seattle Times & Post-Intelligencer "A stunning re-creation, persuasive in the feeling of its authenticity . . . Carson succeeds admirably. . . . Reveals the humanity of a man who is now almost an icon."
  • Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "A fascinating, often insightful look at one of the greatest Americans. . . . Carson [provides] a full treatment of King's emergence as a national figure . . . [and gives] a useful overview of his life and achievements."
  • America "Remarkable . . . Dr. King speaks eloquently and powerfully through these pages and affords readers a privileged look into his mind and heart. . . . Read this book. If it does nothing else, it will remind you of a voice we sorely miss."
  • Gospel Today "Carson has an in-depth knowledge and understanding of King that is brought to bear in this work."
