This Just In: King: A Life

Author Jonathan Eig has written a new biography of the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.  King: A Life is a large tome at nearly 700 pages that is thoroughly researched and adds to the scholarship of the life of the late civil rights leader.  Eig shines fresh light on the King family’s origins as well as King’s relationships with his wife, father, and fellow activists.  Not only are King’s relationships with others looked into but also his own human frailties and dark moods. King: A Life does a great job at showing the complexities and determination of this leader.
