Interesting and informative

This book didn't change my life, but it provided historical detail about a great man and that's what I was looking for. I can't say that I think I have a good sense of MLK's soul, or what made him tick, but I'm glad to know more about his role in the civil rights movement.

Stunning portrait!

Stunning portrait of King and his era! Frady brings to this project multiple talents. One, he can use the English language. Two, he is flat out the best narrator of all the audible books I've purchased. Three, he is candid and unromantic in his reporting. Four, he takes you there, to the front lines of the movement. I never understood how precarious many of those victories were, and I definitely never grasped how much courage was required to accomplish them. God, do I feel grateful to everyone who stepped up to the plate during that era for what was right! Five stars!
