    At the 40th anniversary of King's assassination, acclaimed public intellectual Michael Eric Dyson gives a comprehensive reevaluation of the fate of America, specifically black America. Ambitiously and controversially, he investigates the ways in which we as a people have made it to that Promised Land King spoke of, and the many areas in which we still have a long way to go.

    With so many books about Martin Luther King, Jr. on the market and with a flood of new ones recently published to capture the interest surrounding the 40th anniversary of King's murder, why pick up another one?

    First, Michael Eric Dyson has proven to be one of the most engaging and thought-provoking social commentators of the past few years. Second, he brings both his deep intellect as well as his accessible communication gifts to this tribute to Rev. Dr. King, and the impact of his life and death on our society. Dyson does a great job of setting April 4, 1968 in the context of the time, reflecting of King's difficulties and depression, as well as his notoriety and success. But more than merely a tribute to a fallen leader, Dyson also examines the aftermath, both good and bad, especially within the African-American community, but also for our world as a whole. A powerful "literary license" is Dyson's epilogue, an "interview" with King on his 80th birthday--a truly thought inspiring chapter.

    With a host of volumes about King on the market, this one is well worth exploring.
