Summary
"The story of civil rights in the early 1960s is a tale of courageous sit-ins and marches, police brutality, violence, and murder. It is also a tale of two men : John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., a pair of gifted, charismatc, and ambitious leaders from strikingly different worlds...Kennedy was slow to embrace a full-throated position on equality for black Americans, fearing the wrath of southern Democrats. Over the next three years -- as America was transfixed by a series of dramatic demonstrations across the South -- it was King, more than any other figure, who led Kennedy to finally make a moral commitment to civil rights; and it was Kennedy's hesitation that prompted King to achieve his greatest potential as an activitist..."
