MoreA New York Times Editors Choice PickKennedy and King is an unqualified masterpiece of historical narrative.... A landmark achievement.---Douglas Brinkley, New York Times bestselling author of Rosa ParksKennedy and King traces the emergence of two of the twentieth centurys greatest leaders, their powerful impact on each other and on the shape of the civil rights battle between 1960 and 1963. These two men from starkly different worlds profoundly influenced each others personal development. Kennedys hesitation on civil rights spurred King to greater acts of courage, and King inspired Kennedy to finally make a moral commitment to equality. As America still grapples with the legacy of slavery and the persistence of discrimination, Kennedy and King is a vital, vivid contribution to the literature of the Civil Rights Movement.
