becoming king

The Making of a Legend

This book is destined to become an instant classic. Troy Jackson’s thorough and gripping biography demonstrates Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, growth as a person and a leader.

Andrew L. Barnes’s performance enhances the experience. Capturing an orator like King on audio is a daunting task, and the listener will appreciate Barnes’s agility as he handles each aspect of the book with apparent ease.

Whether he’s describing an event or a meeting or delivering one of King’s speeches, Barnes excels at keeping the story moving and the listener engaged. The book itself is a superb and highly detailed account of the Civil Rights leader that reveals much more about King than many of us knew before.
