Overview

"A magnificent photo album of a magnificent man in magnificent times."-Susan Brownmiller, New York Times Book Review

"Through rich words and stirring black-and-white images, the authors take us on an emotional journey.... There have been many books written about Dr. King, but this one is among the best."-Ebony

Receiving accolades everywhere when it originally appeared in hardcover in 2000, this searing documentary volume chronicles and celebrates the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., one of our country's giant figures, covering events from the 1955-56 Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott to the slain civil rights leader's funeral in 1968. Hundreds of images by many of the finest photographers of the 20th century are combined here with a moving text to detail the pivotal events of King's public and private lives. He is seen here as husband and father, powerful preacher, martyr for the cause of racial justice, and, finally, American icon-a truly great man whose international stature has only grown since his death.

Author Bio: Charles Johnson is a literary critic, essayist, and author of the National Book Award-winning novel Middle Passage. The recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, he teaches writing at the University of Washington in Seattle. Bob Adelman is one of the foremost photographic chroniclers of the civil rights movement. His photographs have been published in LIFE, The New York Times Magazine, Paris Match, and other publications.
