From Publishers Weekly
Through an empathetic biography and comprehensive collection of photographs, the authorsSchulke, a photojournalist who covered the '60s civil rights struggles, and McPhee, a writerpay a quiet, moving tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. and his passion for nonviolent social change. This volume chronicles his life, from birth in segregated Atlanta, to education in Boston, to assassination in 1968 in Memphis, where he was supporting striking garbage collectors. It also documents the events that significantly changed Southern societyMontgomery's bus boycott, Birmingham's Project "C," Selma's bloody race riots. The authors judiciously blend King's eloquent words, culled from speeches, with the recollections of his closest associates, such as Ralph Abernathy, Julian Bond, Andrew Young, Jesse Jackson. The result is a readable, intimate portrait. BOMC selection. January

From Library Journal
Designed as a catalog for the exhibition of Schulke's civil rights movement photographs, this book offers a fairly effective photo essay on the career of Martin Luther King, Jr. but falls far short as a biography. Numerous quotations by King confidantes and co-workers make up the bulk of this book, but these are rarely identified as to date, place, and context. Unfortunately, there is no bibliography or notes. Perhaps in keeping with its essential purpose as an exhibition catalog, the book reads like a series of testimonial speeches. Public library readership should prefer the deft writing and photo selection offered by William R. Witherspoon's Martin Luther King, Jr: to the mountaintop ( LJ 12/1/85). James B.
