Book Title: The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Author: Clayborne Carson, ed.

Book Description:

Martin Luther King, Jr. was more than just an inspirational leader. He was a tactical genius who effected radical changes based on the radical teachings of his faith. By targeting Montgomery, Birmingham, and Selma with the weapon of non-violence and the sword of self-sacrifice, he initiated sweeping changes in the character of our nation. I saw the power of one voice in uniting many hands and many feet. Even today I hear the tramp-tramp-tramp sound of his feet, marching for a righteous cause. Let us all join that march.
