John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. deeply influenced not only American culture and politics, but also each other. In the first book-length treatment of the relationship between these two iconic leaders, Levingston, The Washington Post’s non-fiction book editor and author of Little Demon in the City of Light, traces how these men from very different backgrounds worked through an initially contentious relationship to further the goals of social justice. Focusing on events between 1960 and 1963, Levingston shows how Kennedy’s tentative gestures spurred King to take bolder action, while King’s courage pushed and inspired Kennedy to commit himself to the cause of equal rights.
