Disturbed about man by Benjamin E Mays( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the funeral of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the eulogy was delivered by Benjamin E. Mays, former president of Morehouse College. The men had become close friends when King attended Morehouse. This famous tribute forms the opening chapter of a book dedicated by Dr. Mays to his former student, "who too was disturbed about man." In a forceful and straightforward style, Dr. Mays speaks to men of all races and faiths about how to counteract man's inhumanity to man. His message is that man does not have to attack other nations or his neighbors. He does not have to be a slave to his environment. With God's help he can overcome and improve his environment; he can "rise above the currently accepted practices and point the way to higher and nobler things."--Cover
