An intimate and comprehensive behind-the-scenes portrait of one of America's most famous civil rights activists, focusing on the socio-political developments which led to his untimely death


 


Martin Luther King Jr.'s public life lasted only 13 years-yet in that time, he changed the United States' attitude toward civil rights forever and is still an inspiration to human rights movements today. He has become the epitome of courage, self-denial, compassion, and reconciliation, and exemplifies the belief that moral pressure and force of character can overcome great obstacles. But who was the real Martin Luther King Jr.? This question and more are addressed in this lively, highly informative, and thought-provoking reappraisal of the famous man, showing how King was not a "moderate" but a radical individual whose ideas on peace, war, poverty, social justice, and equality were well ahead of his time. It demonstrates how in the mid-1960s, King broadened his approach to include human rights issues as well as civil rights, and how it was this socio-political development which most concerned his detractors and hastened his downfall.
