A revealing and dramatic chronicle of the twelve months leading up to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.''s assassination.

Martin Luther King, Jr. died in one of the most shocking assassinations the world has known, but little is remembered about the life he led in his final year. New York Times bestselling author and award-winning broadcaster Tavis Smiley recounts the final 365 days of King''s life, revealing the minister''s trials and tribulations -- denunciations by the press, rejection from the president, dismissal by the country''s black middle class and militants, assaults on his character, ideology, and political tactics, to name a few -- all of which he had to rise above in order to lead and address the racism, poverty, and militarism that threatened to destroy our democracy.

Smiley''s Death of a King paints a portrait of a leader and visionary in a narrative different from all that have come before. Here is an exceptional glimpse into King''s life -- one that adds both nuance and gravitas to his legacy as an American hero.
Tavis Smiley is the host of PBS''s Tavis Smiley and Public Radio International''s The Tavis Smiley Show.Smiley is also the bestselling author of 17 books. He lives in Los Angeles, California.
