“This useful collection takes King from the front lines of Southern segregation to a national movement for economic equality to an international condemnation of imperialism and armed intervention.”
Kirkus Reviews

“King’s skills as a preacher and rhetorician are amply in evidence, as is his profound empathy with others.” 
Publishers Weekly
