9780029215210: Voice of Deliverance: The Language of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Its Sources

The true sources of Martin Luther King's powerful sermons and speeches are revealed in this fascinating exploration of his words and imagery. Voice of Deliverance tells of the pulpit traditions of the African-American folk church and of the printed sermons of white, liberal Protestant preachers. King's blending of these styles shows how he skillfully he was able to unite blacks and whites to move together in harmony to action and commitment.
