“The arc of the moral universe is long, and it bends towards justice.”

“We will soon wear you down by our capacity to suffer.”

Was very pleased with this Martin Luther King biography. Marshall Frady is a fantastic writer. When a good book, poem, or movie is finished, the tone of that work will linger for days. Suddenly all thoughts are framed in the same character as that of the movie, or writing mirrors the style of the poem that’s been read because their work has so strongly resonated.

During his life and research, Frady must have felt immersed in the world of King, because his words reflect that crooning yet powerful tone, creating the essence of the time with his words and the words of MLK.

I must thank this book for inspiring a nonfiction/biography kick! Any literary biography recommendations?
