An Introduction

“Instead of adding to the list of King biographies and studies of his oratory, I have chosen to write about how I came to understand King’s historical significance as a great leader in a great movement and the impact of both on my life. [This book] recounts dreams that were realized during the past half century and dreams that turned into nightmares. I have sought to reconcile my view of a freedom struggle initiated and sustained by self-reliant grassroots leaders with my growing understanding of King’s unique, visionary contribution to that struggle…. As I have shared my insights about King with people throughout the world, I have also learned from those who follow in his footsteps. As I have grown older, he has become wiser, and my journey toward personal and historical understanding continues.”
