Marshall Frady (1940–2004) was a veteran journalist who wrote for Newsweek,Harper’s, and The New Yorker. He was also a correspondent forNightline and ABC News. His books include Wallace, a biography ofGeorge Wallace, andJesse: The Life and Pilgrimage of Jesse Jackson.

Marshall Frady, the reporter who became the unofficial chronicler of the civil rights movement, here re-creates the life and turbulent times of its inspirational leader. Deftly interweaving the story of King’s quest with a history of the African American struggle for equality, Frady offers fascinating insights into his subject’s magnetic character, with its mixture of piety and ambition. He explores the complexities of King’s relationships with other civil rights leaders, the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, and the FBI’s J. Edgar Hoover, who conducted a relentless vendetta against him. The result is a biography that conveys not just the facts of King’s life but the power of his legacy.
