Kennedy and King traces the emergence of two of the 20th century's greatest leaders and their powerful impact on each other as well as and on the shape of the civil rights battle between 1960 and 1963. These two men from starkly different worlds profoundly influenced each other's personal development. Kennedy's hesitation on civil rights spurred King to greater acts of courage, and King inspired Kennedy to finally make a moral commitment to equality. As America still grapples with the legacy of slavery and the persistence of discrimination, Kennedy and King is a vital, vivid contribution to the literature of the civil rights movement.
"Kennedy and King is an unqualified masterpiece of historical narrative.... A landmark achievement." (Douglas Brinkley, New York Times best-selling author of Rosa Parks )
"By reminding us of these great leaders and their accomplishments, this book will fuel your passion for the new work we still need to do in our society today." (Congressman John Lewis)
