Both John Kennedy and Martin Luther King were gifted, charismatic leaders, yet the wealthy Irish Catholic and the Southern Baptist preacher were from starkly different worlds. From Harry Belafonte's Manhattan apartment to the White House, and from the Birmingham jail to the Kennedys' Palm Beach estate, Steven Livingston traces the events of this turbulent era, recounting how Kennedy's hesitation spurred King to greater acts of courage, and King in turn inspired the president to finally make a bold commitment to equality.
