About the Author:

Michael Eric Dyson, named by Ebony as one of the hundred most influential black Americans, is the author of sixteen books including April 4, 1968, Is Bill Cosby Right?, Presidential Race, and, I May Not Get There with You: The True Martin Luther King, Jr. He is currently a professor of sociology at Georgetown University. He lives in Washington, DC.

From AudioFile:

With deep, resonant projection that at times sounds eerily like Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, own voice, Dyson narrates his deep exploration into the most significant aspects of King's legacy since his assassination on April 4, 1968. Paying particular attention to how politicians and cultural leaders have utilized King and his message, Dyson contrasts the real King with the misappropriated icon. This approach allows listeners to see the height of King's impact at the time of his death and the symbol of racial equality he has embodied since. Even when not echoing King's cadence and intonation, Dyson delivers a strong narrative performance that illuminates his belief in King's dream. L.E. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
