Product Description
Let freedom ring from every hill
and molehill of Mississippi. From
every mountaintop, let freedom
ring. --Martin Luther King, Jr.

From the dusty back roads of Montgomery, Alabama, to the legendary March on Washington, D.C., Martin Luther King, Jr., brought a stirring message of peace, equality, and justice to a divided people. He aspired only to be a Baptist minister, but by the time he was tragically assassinated in 1968 at the age of thirty-nine, he had led a movement that destroyed segregation in the South, and he had won the Nobel Prize for Peace.

Now, a quarter century after his death, his words are as significant and moving as they were in the 1960s. Watts burns today as it did then; issues of race, justice and human dignity are still the most critical problems facing our nation. This handsome quotation book represents the finest of the Reverend King's words; it is a classic volume compiled from his essays, lectures, and speeches by his wife, Coretta Scott King. Excerpts form his most famous speech-"I Have a Dream" and "I've Been to the Mountaintop"-are included, as well as equally powerful but lesser known quotations. King's vision of healing and forgiveness is a timeless message that American can ill afford to ignore.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Close COmpanion for these coming years of trial and testing: nonviolence is the only way, not war, not hate, but love
"I am convinced that the universe is under the control of a loving purpose, and that in the struggle for righteousness man has cosmic companionship."- the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. as quoted in this Frontispiece

The Companion collection, first published in 1993, gathered from the books, essays and speeches of the Reverend Doctor King by his wife, Coretta Scott King, with the assistance of Joe Kirchberger, and wonderfully published in hardcover with thick, matte, rough edged paper by the great St, Martin's Press stands us good stead and firm companion upon the rocky path ahead which we must yet walk.

Among this collection's sources stand straight the 1957 strengthening volume STRIDE TOWARD FREEDOM, the 1963 Civil Rights Manifesto Why We Can't Wait (Signet Classics) (including several passages from his cornerstone Letter From A Birmingham Jail), the late 1967 commissioning Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community? and the 1967 The Trumpet of Conscience: The Summing-Up of His Creed, and His Final Testament. This collection adds selections from his consoling and enlivening Strength to Love, his discourse upon receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, and his speech Beyond Vietnam, and so this gets enables you to take up your weary mat and walk, strongly, towards freedom, peace and nonviolent love with all humanity.

All Jesus' words and teachings and life are often summed up by three: "Love thy enemy!" Dr. King wrote and said so much more than "I have a dream" or "Free at last!" or "I have been to the mountaintop." In fact his son Dexter alludes in his introduction to this book to over "200,000 documents in his lifetime" written by Dr. King.

Dexter Scott King, in one paragraph of his rich introduction, calls this "a book about my father's words, but more significantly, it's a blueprint for social change. I feel that this portable companion can be read wholly on its own, but also as a source book that illuminates the passages of Dr. King's greatest works. This is a book that is just as meaningful, perhaps more relevant today, than it was twenty-five years ago, when my father died (p. xi)."

As our nation now turns a corner in our long journey, this book serves as well as a light unto our feet and a guide for our future, and grows even more relevant now, sixteen years after its first publication, and over forty years after the publication of its source material. We have much to see here now, to help us on our way, in our progress towards peaceful cooperation and our ultimate survival. Read this book well.

This book, therefore, is divided in to six Parts, each carrying several themes, or issues. The Parts are Heritage, The Movement, Institutions which includes the subsection on the US Presidency, citing among others this passage: "We were all involved in the death of John Kennedy. We tolerated hate; we tolerated the sick stimulation of violence in all walks of life, and we tolerated the differential application of law, which said that a man's life was sacred only if we agreed with his views (p. 28)."The Parts continue with Philosophies, Issues and Reflections, each with their own generous subsections.

In the section on War we find this: "A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death (p. 83)." Hear these words now; where are we now? Where are we going to? And again: "There may have been a time when war served as a negative good by preventing the spread and growth of an evil force, but the destructive power of modern weapons eliminates even the possibility that war may serve as a negative good (p. 82)." These are words for us now, today, as we look at our ruins and trillion dollar deficits, now. Where will we go?

Read this book, a strong companion for the path we have ahead.

5-0 out of 5 stars When you need a way to say something of worth
For a good while I've been speechless.
Oh I talk, sure,but it has been obscured by my being distracted.By my flaws, by others flaws. A waste of energy sometimes, a drain on my heart when not directed to a love purpose.
On Amazon this included a person that deliberately improved a false god standing by ruining mine. Simple truths speak simply, it was a waste of my heart energy and did no one any good. I removed content that mattered to me. I wrote here to talk to issues in teaching, point out good books to use with students and reflect.But it became an accusational festival of lies about me. Untrue, unfair, unfounded and it hurt just good purposes. That's how jealousy and hate work. But I was falsely accused. And I stood pretty much alone. But I have a background in understanding some things. Shoulders to climb on.

I have always been inspired by the work of those who see poverty, see needs, see situations that require our concern and then seeing this lose their own self needs into becoming effective reacting on their feet, they dedicate their life to it, to solutions. Some are silent to the world, unseen forces for good. Sure they know how inadequate and flawed they are, but carry on with the best they have toward peace/compassion/doing as their light. Simple thing to elevate in your self. Some become known to us, often giving up their life in noble pursuit.At the extreme end many have done that.
Obviously Dr. King did that.

So his quotes contained in this little lovely book can slip in your purse and stay with you as you sit in the doctor's office, waiting perhaps to get results to see if you son has an aneurysm in his brain(my week), or whenever you feel you need to look deeper as you meditate, or to share with others to center a task. Good as I start the day, or get a break in it to think again about "WHAT MATTERS" in teaching to me.

So inside are attributions to writings and speeches and a very good culled QUOTATION collection. Nothing doesn't stand there for me like a rock solid foundational value he put into practice.
It is divided into sections:
Heritage, The Movement, Institutions, Philosophies, Issues, Reflections and further subdivided.

Today I need to think, meditate, as I teach King, reading here to center about Love and Compassion. (Within Philosophies)


So try listening :

"The hard hearted individual never sees people as people, but rather as mere objects or as impersonal cogs in an ever turning wheel. In the vast wheel of industry, he sees men as hands."

"...we must recognize that the evil deed of the enemy-neighbor, the thing that hurts, never quite expresses all that he is. An element of goodness may be found even in our worst enemy. Each of us is something of a schizophrenic personality, tragically divided against ourselves."

" Somehow we must be able to stand up before our most bitter opponents and say: "We shall match your capacity to inflict suffering by our capacity to endure suffering, We will meet your physical force with soul force. Do to us what you will and we will still love you."

" The oceans of history are made turbulent by the ever-rising tides of hate. History is cluttered with the wreckage of nations and individuals that pursued that self-defeating path of hate. Love is the key to the solution of the problems of the world."


" It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly."

" If only to save myself bitterness, I have attempted to see my personal ordeals as an opportunity to transfigure myself and heal the people involved in the tragic situation which now obtains. I have lived these past few years with the conviction that unearned suffering is redemptive."
Dr. King

It helps me turn away from the feelings of disappointment, anxiety and deep feelings of disgust towards more loving reserves that allow me to say to that "enemy" ...... try seeing another way. And I will do the same.

Product Description
Reissued with a new cover in trade paperback format in the Newmarket "Words Of" series, this perennial classic—over 200,000 copies sold—belongs in every home, school and library. Throughout his brief life, Martin Luther King communicated vision, passion, and inspiration. He led millions of people in a nonviolent movement that shattered the system of segregation in the South, and at the age of 39 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his eloquent, passionate advocacy of civil and human rights. This timeless volume, authorized by the estate of Martin Luther King, includes highlights from the legendary civil rights leader's speeches, sermons, and writings selected by his wife Coretta Scott King, who contributes an impressive introduction on Dr. King's life and legacy. The stirring book contains approximately 120 quotations, focusing on seven areas of concern: The Community of Man, Racism, Civil Rights, Justice and Freedom, Faith and Religion, Nonviolence, and Peace. Also included is a detailed chronology of Dr. King's life and its involvement in the civil rights movement in our time. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars mlk's words of inspiration
Every family, especially with young children, should have this little book in its home. I thought and read a lot about Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. and his ideas. Still, as I read this little book, I could not stop wondering what I would have been able to accomplish had I read the messages of this book when I was younger.Regrets aside, I feel so calmly inspired to do something good for someone else!After all, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, `What are you doing for others?' . " Moreover, to serve others "you only need a heart full of grace, [and] a soul generated by love" (p. 17).

All seven chapters of the book are insightful, and the introduction and chronology of events before and after the death of Dr. King, Jr are equally valuable reading. It is hard, very hard ,to readthe`I've been to the mountain top'and `I have a dream' speeches without a lump of sadness in one's throat.But in reading the "Proclamation of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, 1986" as a national public holiday by President Ronald Reagan , one gets a sense that America has finally turned into a more inclusive direction for all its people.The election of Barrack Obama to the US Presidency is a further step in the same direction. A fascinating, inspirational, some time very deep reading. Highly recommended!

3-0 out of 5 stars The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Concerned Retrospection

This is a unique collection of Dr. King's most penetrating insights. It tracks his moral progression and intellectual maturity from when he was mostly concerned about the injustices in the South, to larger and deeper concerns about racism and poverty in America more generally, and in the world at large. It is well known that towards the end of his life he had also embraced the peace movement and became a force for ending the Vietnam War. In this collection one will also see how his views on the war had begun to coalesce and gel with his other humanitarian concerns. Dr. King was no lightweight. He drank deep and kept his moral compass on alert at all times.

Reading Mrs Coretta Scott King's excellent introduction and summary of the major events in Dr. King's life, which itself encompasses the whole of the Civil Rights era, brought back uncertain memories and raised new questions about the goals and tactics of the Civil Rights movement of the past era, including the non-violent aspects of it. In my family only my Grandmother, Mrs. Lula Brown, and I participated in the sit-ins at the local Pine Bluff, Arkansas Woolworth's Lunch Counter. The non-violent movement was coordinated through St. James AME Methodist Church, which was about 8-10 blocks from downtown. Each day, the cowardly "good old boys" knowing that they could throw acid from the backs of their pickups with impunity never failed to show up from the countryside to do so.That is until, violating the non-violent protocol I had been so carefully taught, I snatched one of them off the bed of the truck and began to plummet him. He was terrified, as well he should have been. At great embarrassment, I was kicked out of the non-violent movement.

But the point of this story is that neither my Grandmother nor I ever ate at the Woolworth's lunch counter once it was "integrated." And that is the nature of my concerned retrospection: All the symbolism aside, why, when discrimination in jobs, education, etc. were so much more important, were we getting acid throw in our faces to eat at a place from which, none of us would elect to eat in any case? Even 50 years later, the utter narrowness of the goals we had set for ourselves in the sit-in movement still seems to betray a serious commitment (beyond symbolism) to what our collective community needs really were.This mismatch between means and ends has bothered me ever since being kicked out of the movement.

One can argue that sit-ins were the straw that broke the back of segregation. But was it? Arguably, the forces of resistance simply move the front lines back a few yards and turned their resistance in to a much more serious political movement.The "old Southern Dixicrats" are now called "conservative Republicans." In the mean time Dr. King has been assassinated and we are left singing his praises with no programs, no movement, put plenty of lunch counters to eat at.

Three Stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars deeply moving
I was perusing through my bookshelf today, and stumbled across a very old edition of this book, "The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr."
Well I'd always noticed it here and there - but today I actually read it.

It's fantastic. It's something else. He was a genius before his time - yet he managed to stand up, at the right time.

Each excerpt makes you think. Very deep and moving.

Powerful. I highly recommend this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars His fundamental commitment to unconditional love and unarmed truth
This book is a small compilation of quotes from Dr. King's writings and speeches.It's never a bad idea to honor the civil rights leaders and martyrs by reading literature that would again remind us of their struggle.
Through his words we will be reminded of how far we have come:
"I can foresee the Negro vote becoming consistently the decisive vote in national elections." -chapter on Justice and Freedom
Through his words we will be reminded of how far we haven't come:
"...wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows." - chapter on Peace

In one sitting, you could read this book in its entirety.As benefactors of his sacrifice, we should spare a few moments of our time to reflect on Dr. King and his enduring legacy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Small but effective collection of MLK's speeches
When looking for some words of tribute to use at a church function, I recalled the copy of the book sitting amongst others in my home library.No better orator could have been selected than the revered civil rights leader.My presentation went off without and hitch and for that, I thank Dr. King.

This collection is divided into ten sections, with notable commentary by Dr. King:

1.The Community of Man
2.Racism
3.Civil Rights
4.Justice and Freedom
5.Faith and Religion
6.Nonviolence
7.Peace
8."I've Been to the Mountain Top" (excerpt)
9."I Have a Dream" (excerpt)

Product Description
The Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr. has become the definitive record of the most significant correspondence, sermons, speeches, published writings, and unpublished manuscripts of one of America's most best-known advocates for peace and justice. Threshold of a New Decade, Volume V of the planned fourteen-volume series, illustrates the growing sophistication and effectiveness of King and the organizations he led while providing an unparalleled look into the surprising emergence of the sit-in protests that sparked the social struggles of the 1960s. In this pivotal period of his career, King traveled to India in early 1959 to meet with Prime Minister Nehru and other associates of Mahatma Gandhi. After returning to Montgomery, King confronted the continuing ineffectiveness of his Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) by demanding personnel changes and agreeing to relocate to Atlanta at the beginning of 1960. King's move took place just before African American students in the South reclaimed the energy of the Montgomery bus boycott with their bold sit-in protests, which King predicted would become "an integral part of the history which is reshaping the world, replacing a dying order with modern democracy." He was arrested in October after participating in a sit-in protest in Atlanta. His resulting imprisonment led presidential candidate John F. Kennedy to phone his sympathies to King's wife, Coretta, a move many credit for providing the margin of victory in the close election of 1960.Illustrations: 36 b/w photographs, 1 map ... Read more
