Many of us listen to digital audiobooks for our on-the-go lives, but this CD set should be on every listener’s shelf. Originally released as A CALL TO CONSCIENCE and A KNOCK AT MIDNIGHT, the speeches and recordings are introduced by ministers, activists, and world leaders, providing historical context and balance to the live sound recordings of Dr. King. The box set is more than the disks with photos, quotes and liner notes. Hear a sound clip and read our full review here.
