it was amazing

I've known some about the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and certainly heard of him growing up. I was a kid when he was assassinated and Robert Kennedy soon after. They were tumultuous times.

Of course I've heard much about Rosa Parks, but I didn't know the other parties involved in the Montgomery Bus Boycott. MLK wrote this book soon after. He talks much of non-violence as a means of protest, in contrast to armed defense of the Black Panthers, or tactics promoting violence as a means to an end.

This was his first book and I'll read his others. I would suggest reading this first. This is my fourth book for Black History Month. I'll listen to one more starting tomorrow and it'll run into March
