On August 28, 1963, famed civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. shared his dream of a better world on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. His renowned "I Have a Dream" speech is only one among many places he laid out the philosophy of justice and nonviolence that changed the world forever. Fifty years after his death, King's writings remain the best articulation of our best collective hope for a more just, compassionate, and peaceful world. Here, in the only major one-volume collection of his writings, speeches, interviews, and autobiographical reflections, is Martin Luther King Jr. on nonviolence, social piety, integration, black nationalism, and the ethics of love and hope. In the years after his death, the Nobel laureate's writings have only grown in significance and in their prophetic power to challenge and guide us into a better future. - Cover flap.
