Let the Trumpet Sound: A Life of Martin Luther King

by Stephen B. Oates
£14.99   paperback  Canongate Books (1998)

Let the Trumpet Sound: A Life of Martin Luther King by Stephen B. Oates On April 4th, 1968, a shot rang out in the Memphis sky bringing to a violent close the life of the Reverend Martin Luther King.
The youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, King brought the Civil Rights message to the attention of the world. In his tireless fight against racial injustice he travelled over six million miles and, depsite the ever-increasing risk of assassination, made over twenty-five hundred public appearances. A brilliant orator, drawing huge crowds wherever he went, he is best remembered for the passion of his 'I Have A Dream' address, but his importance goes way beyond this. His tragic murder represents a low point in American history and with his death the world lost one of its most inspiring and humane leaders.
Let the Trumpet Sound is Stephen B. Oates's widely acclaimed and highly readable examination of King's life and legacy. It remains a fitting tribute to this truly remarkable man.
