Publisher's Summary

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.


What the Critics Say

"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)

An open and honest assessment of history. I have learned so much. Little nuggets sprinkled throughout I wish it was 10 hours longer.

Great Book!

I've only recently gotten into audio books. Over the past 2.5 years, I have listened to about 30 audio books. This by far, was the best performance in the reading of a book. I loved the different voices used for each major character. It being a well written story helps in providing the reader with such a great book to read.
