Chasing King’s Killer by James L. Swanson

August 1, 2018

 

 

Wow! I thought I knew a fair amount about Martin Luther King Jr., but clearly, I was not even close! Chasing King’s Killer, by James L. Swanson was riveting. I found myself flying through page after page as I was desperately trying to absorb as much information as I possibly could.

 

For example, did you know that Martin Luther King Jr. was once stabbed in the chest with a letter opener?

 

Yeah, me neither! He was at a book signing when an African American one came up and stabbed him with a letter opener. It stuck in his chest, and he almost died! How come I have never known about that?

 

That was just one of the moments that I was absolutely shocked by how little I knew about Martin Luther King Jr. Every page taught me more and more about a man who gave his life in his efforts to fight for equality for everyone.

 

I highly recommend this book to everyone! It provides an amazing picture of who Martin Luther King Jr. was a person and everything he went through during the Civil Rights Movement.
