The most comprehensive the most thoroughly researched and documented the most scholarly of the biographies of Martin Luther King Jr Henry Steele Commanger Philadelphia InuirerWinner of the Robert F Kennedy Memorial Book Award A New York Times Notable Book of the YearDrawing on interviews with those who knew King previously unutilized material at P. Incredibly powerful book After watching Selma recently I realised I really didn t know much about Dr King This book is an excellent biography readable balanced intelligent Unlike many dry biographies this can be a tear jerker at times especially when recounting some of King s fine speeches and with the way in which it builds to the fateful climaxMy only disappointment is the abrupt ending As a new to the subject non American I was really wanting an epilogue something to summarise the future of the civil rights movement and King s legacy To not include that was a huge let down for an otherwise virtually faultless book Now I know how he died but nothing about what happened after his funeralDespite that single flaw I would heartily recommend this book as a fantastic introduction to the life of Martin Luther King

Let the Trumpet Sound: A Life of Martin Luther King, Jr. (P.S.)

Ok ReviewBy the acclaimed biographer of Abraham Lincoln Nat Turner and John Brown Stephen B Oates's prizewinning Let the Trumpet Sound is the definitive one volume life of Martin Luther King Jr This brilliant examination of the great civil rights icon and the movement he led provides a lasting portrait of a man whose dream shaped American history;. There is a gap in knowledge about Martin Luther King in the UK Yes we know the headlines but his speeches were not broadcast here and in my view otherwise well read people can have a lucana about the broader facts of his lief for instance his heroic stance on the Vietnam War his anti poverty work and his beautiful personality I don t think I ve ever read such a moving story In fact odd as it might sound I think I became a better person by reading this book because I learnt about what it means to love and to do everything you can to help other human beings If you flick through the opening pages do not let yourself be put off at all by a slightly pompous sounding author s essay at the start the book itself is very well researched and written Martin Luther King achieved in seven years what could have taken seven decades the successful challenges against various forms of segregation But the last couple of years of his life were deeply painful because he tried to tackle informal and economic serration And 50 years after he died we still haven t got near to solving that But we shall overcome one day And as he said Everybody can be greatbecause anybody can serve You don t have to have a college degree to serve You don t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve You only need a heart full of grace A soul generated by love

    Well researched and well written Full of insights into behind the scenes experiences, made especially interesting since I was a young woman during that time The only drawback for me was that it was scholarly, and I was wanting something relaxing at the time It was like reading an excellent high school or college book.

    I read this when I realized how little use I had made of the Black History Months that have come and gone I was inspired, heartbroken, encouraged, discouraged, lifted up, cast down, touched by the love of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, amazed at the vision, courage and love of MLK, humbled by his intellect

    A very moving and interesting book, about a time which seems very distant now.Interesting that King was born to a family of preachers and that he was very highly educated His education won him great honours and until circumstances intervened he anticipated a life as a scholar of comparative religion He was also extremely well read in philosophy and sought desperately in his studies to answer questions about morality and social reform, be

    This is an excellent and readable biography of Martin Luther King Here is portrayed one of the most outstanding people of the twentieth century, and done with both sensitivity and realism Stephen Oates must have reflected very carefully over his sources: his own preoccupations stay carefully in the background while he ensures that his subject stays centre stage through turbulent times Oates deferentially ends the stor
