I have recently listened to this audio book. This is an AWSOME audio book. If you have not listened (you must listen, not just read this book) to this you are missing something in your Christian life. These speeches chronicle how one man, with his authority the God of the Bible, spoke out against the injustice of racial prejudice and discrimination and call them what they are, social immoralities.
This is a soul-stirring journey through those days via the speeches. Each speech also starts with a commentary by people who were there when the speeches were given.
This book should be call to action for Christians today to speak out on the immoralities of today.
