Synopsis

Synopsis

A revealing collection that restores Dr. King as being every bit as radical as Malcolm X
 
Every year, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is celebrated as one of the greatest orators in US history, an ambassador for nonviolence who became one of the most recognizable leaders of the civil rights movement. But after more than forty years, few people appreciate how truly radical he was. Arranged thematically in four parts, The Radical King includes twenty-one selections, curated and introduced by Cornel West, that illustrate King’s revolutionary Christian vision as a democratic socialist, underscoring his identification with the poor, his unapologetic opposition to the Vietnam War, and his crusade against global imperialism.
 
The King Legacy is a partnership between the Estate of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Beacon Press. Beacon has published Dr. King’s most important writings and orations, and has worked with leading scholars and civil rights activists, who have delved into archives, to create entirely new books.

“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.”
