APRIL 4, 1968 Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Death and How It Changed America

by | Read by Michael Eric Dyson

History • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

With deep, resonant projection that at times sounds eerily like Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, own voice, Dyson narrates his deep exploration into the most significant aspects of King's legacy since his assassination on April 4, 1968. Paying particular attention to how politicians and cultural leaders have utilized King and his message, Dyson contrasts the real King with the misappropriated icon. This approach allows listeners to see the height of King's impact at the time of his death and the symbol of racial equality he has embodied since. Even when not echoing King's cadence and intonation, Dyson delivers a strong narrative performance that illuminates his belief in King's dream.
