Item Description...
Forty years after Dr King's death his message remains as radical and relevant as ever. 'A clear, well researched, and ground breaking text. Harding unites the objectivitiy of a scientific investigation with an empathy for justice, and marshals a compelling argument for a re-articulation of the heroic dimensions of Martin Luther King, Jr.' - Dwight Hopkins In these eloquent essays, noted scholar and activist Vincent Harding reflects on the forgotten legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr and his message for today. While many prefer to embrace the 'safer' message of King's stirring 'I Have a Dream' speech, Harding writes passionately of King's later years, when his message and witness became more radical and challenging to the status quo at every level. The widening of King's message and tactics reflected an expansion of his critique of American injustice and his solidarity with the oppressed. It was this vision, in 1968, that brought him to Memphis, where he paid the final price for his prophetic witness. It is that 'inconvenient hero' who speaks so urgently to the challenges of our time.
