Letters to Martin ›

By Randal Maurice Jelks

"Dr. Randal Jelks's Letters to Martin is a profound meditation on democracy, spirituality, and history. A specialist in the history of the civil rights movement and the intellectual history of spirituality, Dr. Jelks engages the work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a deep and revealing examination of the meaning of democracy, ultimately centering it in the experiences of Black Americans. This is a lyrical book of hope and praise that is nonetheless unflinching in its honesty and compelling in its assessments." —Heather Cox Richardson, author of How the South Won the Civil War
