About the Book

Martin Rising is a stunning, poetic presentation of the final months of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life – told in a rich embroidery of visions, color, musical cadence, deep emotion, and multiple layers of meaning.

Against a backdrop of the sanitation workers’ strike in Memphis, Tennessee, the book builds to its rousing crescendo as King delivers his “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech – where his life’s commitment to peaceful activism and his dream of equality ascend to their highest peak.

The Pinkneys’ powerful and spiritual look at King’s legacy celebrates the courage and moral conviction of a man who changed the course of history forever. And even in the face of searing tragedy, he continues to inspire, transform, and elevate all of us who share his dream.
