Martin Luther King, Jr. by Marshall Frady( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a young journalist in the South in the 1960s, Marshall Frady walked the hot sidewalks, sat in crowded churches and courtrooms, and interviewed prominent civil rights leaders. Now the critically acclaimed biographer profiles a man whose spiritual and political leadership gained him an indelible place in twentieth-century history. In his masterly and riveting Martin Luther King, Jr., Frady draws on his twenty-five years of award-winning commentary on American race relations to give an inspiring portrait of this amazing leader and the turbulent era in which he lived." "Martin Luther King, Jr., deftly interweaves the history of the civil rights movement with King's rise to fame and influence and offers fascinating insight into factions within the movement itself. Frady explores the complexities of King's relationship with the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, J. Edgar Hoover's relentless hounding of the civil rights leader, and King's anticipation of his own death. Above all, Frady's spellbinding voice brings to new life the ambitious, pious son of an Atlanta Baptist minister thrust onto a national platform of moral grandeur, and it shows, in vividly recalled scenes, how both King and his country reacted to those cataclysmic years."--Jacket

Jesse : the life and pilgrimage of Jesse Jackson by Marshall Frady( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Library Journal: Journalist Frady's biography of Civil Rights leader and former presidential candidate Jesse Jackson makes extensive use of numerous interviews and conversations that the author had with Jackson, his family, and many of his associates. The book offers valuable insights into Jackson's difficult childhood and its effect on his personality; his relationship with Martin Luther King; and his two presidential campaigns. Frady also accompanied Jackson on a trip to Iraq in 1990 and provides an excellent account of how Jackson persuaded Iraq's leader, Saddam Hussein, to release hostages taken during the early days of the Persian Gulf crisis. Unfortunately, Frady has a tendency to be repetitious, and his writing style may sometimes hinder the general reader's understanding rather than facilitate it. Nonetheless, this is the most comprehensive biography available of a very important American political figure
