Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr., And The Southern Christian Leadership Conference by David Garrow

Winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Biography and the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, this is the most comprehensive book ever written about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Based on more than 700 interviews with all of Kings surviving associates, as well as with those who opposed him, and enhanced by the authors access to Kings personal papers and tens of thousands of pages of FBI documents, this is a towering portrait of a mans metamorphosis into a legend. Garrow traces Kings transformation from a young, earnest pastor of a modest church into the foremost spokesperson of the black freedom struggle. The books central unifying theme is Kings growing awareness of the symbolic meaning of the cross as his sense of mission deepened, matured, and was transmuted by sometimes-reluctant degrees into acceptance of a life and a role that would end by demanding the ultimate in self-sacrifice. This is a powerful portrait of a man at the epicenter of one of the most dramatic periods in our history.
