A testament of hope the essential writings and speeches
A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches by Martin Luther King Jr.i hadnt read 90% of these before. its too bad that really the only thing most people have heard from King is his I Have a Dream Speech, because although historically important, there are so many even better things that he wrote and spoke about.
especially good were many of the writings that he did near the end of his life. King did not shrink from deeply questioning capitalism, poverty, and the U.S. militarys campaigns around the world. Kings campaigns in these areas were just beginning to take off during the last few years of his life. i wonder what impact he could have had on poor peoples movements and labor movements were he not killed so early in his life.
these speeches are important reading not just for people who want to get to know Kings mind more thoroughly, but also for those of us who really need some inspiration as both the right and left continue to disappoint us. many of his writings are sadly relevant as we face many of the same social and political challenges today.
