King Stories by Dorothy Green Alcorn
Notably one of the most significant Americans in the 20th Century, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is an iconic figure. But what made the man? King Stories offers snapshots into his personality and character by sharing rarely documented stories about the personal and private sides of Dr. King, told by close friends and associates. We begin with Dr. King’s precocious teenage years followed by close-ups of behind the scenes accounts of day-to-day life on the road marching and protesting for American black civil rights. We hear a moving account of Dr. King’s last conversation just minutes before he was struck down by a sniper’s bullet, and the disclosures of the investigation into his murder.
