The visionary Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., became one of the nation's most famous activists, fighting for equality for blacks. Until his death by assassination in 1968, King's own dream provided hope for his people and attracted thousands of followers. Garrick Hagon recounts the events of King’s life from his birth in Atlanta through his death. Hagon provides a broadcasting style narration of the details of King's rise in the Civil Rights Movement. In recreating King's most famous speeches, Hagon falls short in delivering the passion conveyed by the Reverend. So well known are these speeches that the lack of enthusiasm in recounting them is a disappointment. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 04]
