Martin Luther King, Jr.: A Life (Penguin Lives Biographies) - used book

ISBN: 0143036483

ID: 3688989

Unheroic in appearance, given to "deacon-sober suits" and "ponderous gravity," Martin Luther King Jr. ushered in an epochal era of change in the United States. Closely watching King's journey from Montgomery to Birmingham to the Lincoln Memorial to Memphis was journalist Marshall Frady, who honors the minister's achievement and spirit in this lucid biography. "Almost a geological age ago, it seems now--that great moral saga of belief and violence that unfolded in the musky deeps of the South during the civil rights movement of the fifties and sixties." So Frady opens his account, which traces King's transformation from withdrawn, unconfident child to eloquent champion of the oppressed, ever unafraid to trouble the waters. Frady explores King's conflicts, contradictions, and triumphs, as well as the great personal cost he bore in urging nonviolent change in a singularly violent time. Part of the excellent Penguin Lives series, this slender volume sheds much light on a prophet now honored, but still too little understood. --Gregory McNamee african-american and black,african-american studies,biographies,civil rights and liberties,ethnic and national,historical,leaders and notable people,political,politics and government,politics and social sciences African-American & Black, Penguin Books

Martin Luther King, Jr.: A Life - used book

ISBN: 9780143036487

ID: 435159

Marshall Frady, the reporter who became the unofficial chronicler of the civil rights movement, here re- creates the life and turbulent times of its inspirational leader. Deftly interweaving the story of Kingas quest with a history of the African American struggle for equality, Frady offers fascinating insights into his subjectas magnetic character, with its mixture of piety and ambition. He explores the complexities of Kingas relationships with other civil rights leaders, the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, and the FBIas J. Edgar Hoover, who conducted a relentless vendetta against him. The result is a biography that conveys not just the facts of Kingas life but the power of his legacy.
