Dexter King, the youngest son of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr & Mrs. Coretta Scott King, shares intimate memories of his lifetime. The devastating murder of his father and the painful aftermath of classmates, teachers, general public, media and police and government officials' lack of understanding and misinterpretation of the King families' motives in seeking information about the death as well as protection of his father's legacy is revealed.
Working through deep-seated learning difficulties and a sleep disorder, it takes many years for this thoughtful son of the "king" of the civil rights nonviolent movement to find resolution and peace from within and without. Complete with black and white photographs this is a first-person account of this most traumatic yet productive period in America's history. A look at the civil rights movement from an "insiders" vantage point. Very revealing!
