Why We Can’t Wait by Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King’s classic exploration of the events and forces behind the Civil Rights Movement—includes his “Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 16, 1963.”

 

To the Mountaintop: Martin Luther King Jr.’s Sacred Mission to Save America by Stewart Burns

A beautiful biography of Dr. King’s life and work, and how the Civil Rights campaign emerged. It’s also the history of the turbulent period that changed the course of American history.

 

The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr., edited by Clayborne Carson

This extraordinary autobiography is a first-person account of one of America’s greatest leaders, chronicling MLK’s childhood, education, and ascendency as a leader of civil rights. It also displays his constant battle with fear as he faced daily death threats.
