Product description

2009 marks the 80th birthday of a remarkable man. "Life: Remembering Martin Luther King, JR." dramatically depicts a hero's journey. Gathering together the most important photographs taken of Dr. King, the book is unique: it focuses on the man exclusively and intimately. We see him and get to know him - the inspired leader, the thoughtful minister, the brilliant nonviolent campaigner, the loving father and husband, the eloquent spokesman for his people, the gentle but forceful advocate for peace through peaceful change. We gaze upon image after image of America's dreamer in his moments of triumph and tension, elation and despair.It is an epochal story, and it was the photography of the time, much of which first appeared in the pages of "Life Magazine", that was crucial in changing the country's opinions on the core issue. It was this photography that was one of Dr. King's great weapons. And here it is, complete in this magnificent photographic biography: "Remembering Martin Luther King, JR."
