A landmark biography of MLK
Vividly written and exhaustively researched, Jonathan Eig’s King: A Life is the first major biography in decades of Martin Luther King Jr.—and the first to include recently declassified FBI files. In this revelatory portrait, the bestselling biographer gives us an intimate view of the courageous and often emotionally troubled human being who demanded peaceful protest for his movement but was rarely at peace with himself. Eig casts fresh light on the King family’s origins, as well as MLK’s complex relationships with his wife, father, and fellow activists.
King reveals a minister wrestling with his own human frailties, a citizen hunted by his government, and a man determined to fight for justice even if it proved to be a fight to the death.
