Kennedy and King are two of the twentieth century's greatest leaders. Steven Levingston writes of their impact on each other and how that relationship shaped the Civil Rights Movement between 1960 and 1963.
Levingston shows Kennedy's initial hesitation on civil rights and suggests this "hesitation' is what spurred King to greater acts of courage, and with those acts, inspires Kennedy to make a moral commitment to equality.
"Kennedy and King tells the story of two brilliant leaders who injected new meaning into the veins of American society. Together, their influence created a moral imperative that changed the U.S. and the world. Levingston's book is both historical and visionary. By reminding us of these great leaders and their accomplishments, this book will fuel your passion for the new work we still need to do in our society today."―Democratic Congressman from Georgia, John Lewis (1940-2020).
