Weve got some difficult days ahead, civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., told a crowd gathered at Memphiss Clayborn Temple on April 3, 1968. But it really doesnt matter to me now because Ive been to the mountaintop. . . . And Ive seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land. These prohetic words, uttered the day before his assassination, challenged those he left behind to see that his promised land of racial equality became a reality; a reality to which King devoted the last twelve years of his life. These words and other are commemorated here in the only major one-volume collection of this seminal twentieth-century American prophets writings, speeches, interviews, and autobiographical reflections. A Testament of Hope contains Martin Luther King, Jr.s essential thoughts on nonviolence, social policy, integration, black nationalism, the ethics of love and hope, and more.
