Book Review #7
Don't Know Much About Martin Luther King Jr. by Kenneth C. Davis
Rating: three stars (out of four)
A biography of Martin Luther King Jr. told in the way that only Kenneth C. Davis can; a little bit of humor and lots of quirky questions leading to answers.
This book gave an interesting portrayal about Martin King Luther Jr. and his life that I had not read before. It started with his childhood and gave me elements and facts about him that made him more personable to me. I liked that it wasn't always just about Martin Luther King Jr. Kenneth C. Davis was very good about pointing out all the other people that had worked so hard, but weren't necessarily in the lime light. I enjoyed reading this book, even if it did have a fair amount of sad parts about how Martin Luther King's movement was threatened and beaten down. I hope that we can learn from the past.
