    1. I read this because I wanted to take a deeper dive into Martin Luther's King writing and speeches. This collection contains some of his lesser known work. I was not surprised by MLKs skill with language and his ability to bring a fresh perspective to a long-running problem. What took me aback was MLK's radicalism. He would be (derisively) called a "globalist" today. His affinity for Gandhi and non-violent protest is well-documented, but in this book, he writes in depth about Gandhi's accomplishm [...]

    2. Whatever we do should be done in a spirit of international brotherhood, not national selfishness.

Whether you are a casual or well-informed student of King, this book is a must-read.

NOTE: I received this book as part of a First Reads Giveaway in exchange for my honest review.This book will be reviewed in my typical Pros and Cons FormatOS: "In a Single Garment of Awesomeness" - This is an outstanding collection of Speeches, Quotes, Comments and Letters by the beloved Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The greatest thing about this book is that it shows you how Dr. King was more than just a key player in the Civil Rights Movement, he was also highly politically involved all over the [...]

    5. Even today many people can't tell you more about Dr. Martin King jr. then "I have a dream" or qualities like "a southern civil rights leader" or "the American Gandhi". Lewis V. Baldwin & Charlayne Hunter-Gault gathered statements, sermons and speeches by Martin Luther Jr. King from various libraries. In a Single Garment of Destiny : A Global Vision of Justice, part of the King Legacy Series, treats King's positions on global liberation struggles through the prism of his own words and activit [...]
