A Testament of Hope

The Essential Writings and Speeches of Martin Luther King, JR.
  • By Martin King
Product Description

"We've got some difficult days ahead," Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., told a crowd gathered at Memphis's Clayborn Temple on April 3, 1968. "But it really doesn't matter to me now because I've been to the mountaintop ... And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land."

This prophetic speech, uttered the day before his assassination, challenged those King left behind to see that his "promised land" of racial equality became a reality. These words and others are commemorated in the only major one-volume collection of this civil rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner's writings, speeches, interviews, and autobiographical reflections. A Testament of Hope contains Martin Luther King, Jr.'s essential thoughts on nonviolence, social policy, integration, Black Nationalism, and more.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968), civil rights leader, advocate for worldwide social justice, and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, inspired and sustained the struggle for freedom, nonviolence, and interracial unity. His words and deeds continue to shape the lives and destinies of millions.

Editor James M. Washington (1948-1997) was a recognized authority on Martin Luther King, Jr. and a professor of American church history at Union Theological Seminary in New York City.

"Reveals the breadth and depth of King's] philosophical thinking, his tough-mindedness, and the sophistication and forensic skill that he could bring to an argument." - The New Yorker
