This is an essential collection piece for Martin Luther King, Jr., historians and those just becoming educated to the teachings of one of this century's greatest leaders. Commissioned by MLK's widow, Coretta Scott King, Clayborne Carson has compiled a powerful array of King's speeches, written accounts of his life (in the form of journal entries and letters to his family) and rare MLK audio clips. The result is a mainly "religious and political" chronicle of King's life. The package is narrated in part by the experienced storyteller LeVar Burton and supplemented with mood-appropriate musical segments that help to characterize the themes of the production. Even the audio case itself is a testimony to what King cherished, featuring photographs of his wife and children. The years of preparation that went into this audio presentation are evident. More than a resource, The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr., is a keepsake. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 99]
