National Archives Hosts the Editor of the Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin’s Dream: My Journey and the Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Washington, DC…The National Archives hosts a book lecture on Thursday, January 10, at noon to discuss the memoir Martin’s Dream: My Journey and the Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., by Dr. Clayborne Carson.
In his candid memoir, Carson, editor of the Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr., recounts his decades-long quest to preserve King’s great legacy and understand his “dream.” Taking the reader on a journey of rediscovery, he reveals little-known aspects of Dr. King and shows how our image of him has evolved over generations. A book signing will follow the program.
