Upcoming Event
Thursday, February 22, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Drawing heavily from memoirs, CIA and FBI reports, magazine articles, and other research, the author presents a fast-paced account of a tumultuous time in U.S. history.  Beginning with an introduction by Congressman John Lewis, the book places the events surrounding the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. into historical context. It explores the legacies of both King, a legendary civil rights activist, and James Earl Ray, the prison escapee who murdered him. Swanson’s extensive source notes will allow young historians to trace—or even continue—research.
