Reading the legacy of Dr. King is important and understanding the moral and spiritual life of America's greatest leader has been my life's journey.

This is a beautiful book filled with photographs from a man who started out as a volunteer photographer of the civil rights movement.

The pictures are worth more than a thousand words. They are priceless.
