Dion Graham superbly narrates this riveting audiobook, emulating the majestic cadence of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, speeches. He captures the Civil Rights leader’s deep, resonant tone; deliberate ministerial intonation; and, during offstage moments, his world-weariness. When portraying Coretta Scott King, Graham modulates his style, and he shifts into reportorial mode, quickening his pace, when delivering historical details of racist violence. Dr. King is rendered as a great but flawed man. The author has made use of recently released tapes and reams of documents from the FBI; he did hundreds of interviews and had access to other hitherto unseen papers, including the unpublished memoir of Dr. King’s father. The result is a monumental biography performed exquisitely by a Golden Voice narrator. A.D.M.
