From Our Editors
An exhilarating and forceful memoir of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning civil rights leader, The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr. is a masterpiece of an autobiography. King scholar Clayborne Carson drew on Stanford University's vast archives, including Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s until now unpublished writings, audio and video recordings, interviews, and personal correspondence, to create a first-person account of King's exceptional life. The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr. takes readers from King's boyhood as the son of a preacher and his training as a minister, to his role in the Montgomery bus boycott and his incredible role in the civil right movement.
