One day only: 99¢ e-book of Martin Luther King, Jr.: The Last Interview and Other Conversations
by Peter Clark
When we added Martin Luther King, Jr. to the Last Interview Series, we did it because his words will stand the test of time.
With a verbal tenacity that orators have emulated ever since — and a deep reserve of wisdom that inspires freshly on each listen — Martin Luther King, Jr.’s thought is as compelling and vital as ever. Considering the racial undertones of so much of what’s said by our current president, this may be the perfect moment to recalibrate our discussion on race and the American Dream. Who better to lead that discussion than Martin Luther King?
“…America is overflowing with the milk of prosperity and the honey of opportunity… But tragically and unfortunately, there is another America. This other America has a daily ugliness about it that constantly transforms the buoyancy of hope into the fatigue of despair.”
And what are we to do with this knowledge?
“It seems to me that all people of goodwill must now take a stand for that which is just, that which is righteous. Indeed, in the words of the prophet Amos, ‘Let justice roll down like the waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
So, for today only, we’re offering e-book copies of Martin Luther King, Jr.: The Last Interview and Other Conversations, for ninety-nine cents. That’s right, ninety-nine cents. Cheaper than a candy bar. Cheaper than a bus ride.
We’ll be printing these timeless words forever, and there’s no better to get your copy. You’ll be glad you did.
And of course, happy birthday to Dr. King.
