Description - A Gift of Love by Martin Luther King, Jr.
A powerful collection of sermons by Martin Luther King, Jr., published in Penguin Modern Classics for the first time.
Throw us in jail, and we shall still love you. Send your hooded perpetrators of violence into our community at the midnight hour and beat us and leave us half dead, and we shall still love you.'
One of the greatest activists in history, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s message of non-violent resistance rang throughout the world and continues to inspire generations. In this essential collection of his most powerful, thought-provoking sermons, preached at the height of Civil Rights activism in America, he shows how love - strong and muscular, not weak or sentimental - is the wellspring for action against the evils of racism, poverty and war. A clarion call for freedom and justice, these lectures show King as pastor, prophet and intellectual, one whose philosophy of peaceful protest is still needed urgently in our divided world.
