I don't read a lot of nonfiction, but I am always fascinated by anything about Dr. Martin Luther King. Having lived through the civil rights era presided over by Dr. King, I have always admired the man and his strong beliefs. This book, Tavis Smiley's Death of a King, paints an entirely different picture - that of a tragic figure who in the last while before his assasination was frustrated, depressed and losing his place as a black leader. This is a sad but very well written book. I will be finished with it by the 17th of March.
