KING FOR KIDS is a misleading title; this recording could well be entitled KING FOR EVERYONE: AN ESSENTIAL INTRODUCTION TO MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. As one narrator remarks, for those who do not have personal memories of this man, this collection bears witness to the period and the person. Hearing each of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, speeches as one in a continuum calls attention to his passions and concerns, and underscores his oratory style. The introductions by distinguished Americans, including George McGovern, Coretta Scott King, and Andrew Young, provide historical perspective and background for each speech. From the Montgomery Improvement Association meeting to the Memphis Mason Temple meeting, King’s speeches are remarkable. A.R.
