When Dexter Scott King was watching television one day, there was a breaking news bulletin. The bulletin was that his father had been shot in Memphis.
This book is about his life as one of the children of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the aftereffects of the murder of his father, of his mothers efforts to continue his fathers ‘legacy’. He writes of the Civil Rights movement and progress made. The criticism heaped on him and his siblings for ‘not being King’ and their inability to move forward.
Unfortunately he meanders, he talks about a subject through to the end, then the next chapter goes to another subject that started before this one, then in another chapter he goes back to a previous subject, and everything is very detached and rambling, you make no emotional connection to anything he says, because he is detached emotionally.
Overall this is a very detailed and informative account of what happened to MLK and to the family, but it is not very easy to read.
