If you want to read an eye witness account of the civil rights movement - this it. Mrs. King to me is one of the most beloved and respected women of the movement, it was an interesting account of how women were treated 'to be seen, but not heard'. Women were involved in the movement from the beginning, but their voices were seldom heard. We have made progress, but still a lot of work to be done.
It was disappointing however to see that someone wrote their personal comments in the book in ink on 4 pages - I personally did not want to read what someone other than the author wrote. It's not ok to me to write in a book unless it belongs to me - at least with pencil, it could have been easily erased. When I return the book, I will mention this to the Library staff, and hopefully they can somehow remove the ink, and not have to repurchase the book.

Finally, We get to hear from one of the most iconic women in our time from the civil right era. This honest no holds barred account comes from the mouth of a woman who dedicated her life to the legacy and love of her late great husband civil rights leader, Rev.Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. and the nonviolence civil rights movement while carving out her own rightful legacy in history and paving the way for others to do the same.

Loved the first half of the book: the stories of the trials and struggles of the Civil Rights Movement. A sad tale of our nation.

The second half, or last third, maybe, got a little too political for me. It became tiresome.

Overall, a good read.
