9780143036487: Martin Luther King, Jr.: A Life (Penguin Lives Biographies)

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 King s quest with a history of the African American struggle for equality, Frady offers fascinating insights into his subject s magnetic character, with its mixture of piety and ambition. He explores the complexities of King s relationships with other civil rights leaders, the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, and the FBI s J. Edgar Hoover, who conducted a relentless vendetta against him. The result is a biography that conveys not just the facts of King s life but the power of his legacy."
