Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr

A brilliant audiobook from Audible. One of the best I've ever listened to. 

Edited by Stanford scholar Clayborne Carson, this volume is a collection of King's writing, interviews and speeches. Levar Burton's narration is crisp and well-paced. 

The greatest strength of this book is, of course, his towering speeches. And here lies the importance of this book as an audio format. 
One can't help but being shaken by his rhetorical intelligence and an unparalleled power as an orator. 
And a courage he possessed and a life lived according to his unflinching conviction of nonviolence. 

This is a celebration of this great man's legacy, and I'm very glad to be able to comprehend its content without a translation.
