Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”


In honor of his birthday January 15th 1929

The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Via Goodreads: King scholar Clayborne Carson has constructed a remarkable first-person account of Dr. King’s extraordinary life. Beginning with his boyhood, the book portrays King’s education as a minister, his ascendancy as a leader of the Montgomery bus boycott, his pivotal role in the civil rights demonstrations in Washington, D.C.
Rated: 4.6 on

This is a great book if you want a deeper level of understanding of Dr. King’s spirit, and his intentions in the Civil Rights Movement.

  1. Thank you for this post. I have not read the autobiography, but it is on my list now for 2016. Have you looked at his coffee table book? It is titled King by Charles Johnson and Bob Adelman. The photography is all black and white, and it is one of my favorite treasures. I also love the book Children of the Dream by Laurel Holliday. It is a must read and truly does define growing up black in America.
