DO WE, THE PEOPLE REALLY WANT THE TRUTH....? Yep. We don't mind hearing the truth. But here's the way it goes for us.
As long as J.Edgar Hoover, with his low-down and dirty ways that spit on our Constitutional rights to privacy and our Constitutional right to speak-freely and protest, was telling his dirty-tales, we felt fine spreading the news like gossip. Because it doesn't hurt so bad when we think it's gossip. (Back Then, we didn't want Jackie Kennedy to marry Onassis for the same reason. She was OUR First Lady--an all American First Lady. We thought we had a right to speak out against what we thought was inappropriate for our FLOTUS like marrying Onassis. We didn't think he was good enough for her. We worried about her. She was so poised and graceful and made us feel good as Americans. You see we loved her because we loved John Kennedy. He gave his life for his country like Martin and Robert and Malcolm. But then we heard John's underbelly stories too and Marilyn Monroe's name was tossed around like so much candy. Later on, came Bill Clinton and again we had those feelings again when his under-belly was revealed. He lied trying to cover the truth and Americans were more angry over the lie than the whatchamacallit he done. In the end, the icons survived but maybe they felt pain hearing us talking about them and what they did and what they do when they feel they need to do it. WE gave been told clearly that our icons have personal lives. AND, we say yes they do but we want to hear about it and comment about it. AND, we are serious. Our icons do what they do and put their lives on the line doing it, just like our soldiers, but we want to know about it and comment about it.

The book was OK to me. I thought that Mrs. Powers was a little too focused on men. I got a little tired of the cheating on her first husband and the "other" affairs that she had. Her success is overshadowed by her scandalous escapades. I usually like it when a woman has her personal life in order as well as her professional life.

It gives you a realistic insight as to the man and the movement. I found it very informative and it showed a human side to Dr. King, growing up as a child of the late 50's early 60's your parents and adults around you portrayed him as a God like almost not human, not capable of making a mistake or being vunderable as most human beings are. I'am not trying to take away from the fact that it took a very extorantory person to stand against the injustices that were being thrust upon a group of people just because of the color of their skin, or their religious beliefs.
