Summary

In 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., isolated himself from the demands of the civil rights movement, rented a house in Jamaica with no telephone, and labored over his final manuscript. In this prophetic work, which was unavailable for more than 10 years, he lays out his thoughts, plans, and dreams for America's future, including the need for better jobs, higher wages, decent housing, and quality education. With a universal message of hope that continues to resonate, King demanded an end to global suffering, asserting that humankind - for the first time - has the resources and technology to eradicate poverty.

Dr. King Could Have Written this Book Today!

This book is as relevant today as it as was in the 1960's when it was written.

Sadly education, housing and social justice issues remain just about as intransigent today as they did 50 years ago.

If you're interested in education, housing, politics or criminal justice, this book is a must read.

Dr. King's foresight is amazing. We have the means to solve many of these problems. We need the will to do so.

Well worth the read and still very relevant.

Living in 2018 and reading this book there are several surprises as MLK talks about well known issues like racism and other issues I hadn't expect him to touch on like the effect of automation.

As tensions between the US and North Korea grow his comments on how we invest in was are still relevant.

Amazing

King did it again. He articulated crucial ideas for the betterment of human society in marvelous manners. His arguments are sound and clear, simple and logical. If only more people in the world would see things as King did our lives would have much less suffering.

This book was amazing!!!

I loved this book and the speaker made me feel like MLK was talking directly to me.

Chapter 4 spoke to me, like MLK was alive right now and detailing Today's issues.

I definitely recommend this book & audiobook to anyone who loves true introspective thinking about our country and the way forward.

A Must Read/Listen

The timeless and sadly still needed writings of one of the greatest men of history. The words are powerful and the narrator is wonderful to listen to.

The Words That Got King Assassinated

King lays out the blueprint to a world without violence, poverty, racism, and exploitation. Those who possess power feared the inevitable revolution King was promoting in these words...

Relevant Today (2019)

Anyone interested in human rights should absolutely read this book. The discussions of non-violence, community organizing, effective boycotts, unionization, and integrated direct action, etc. are extremely relevant today. This book made me view history not in decades, but in centuries. It feels as though Ferguson, Baltimore, "Black Lives Matter" and various other movements are all a part of the same historical arc as the Civil Rights era of MLK.

10/10 would recommend.
