The Promise and the Dream
Delve into “The Promise and the Dream” by David Margolick–the untold story of Robert Kennedy’s connection to Martin Luther King as these men came together during the civil rights movement. In a compelling account of both the tension and respect that existed between these two giants in our history, Margolick speculates on how history might have changed if these men had lived twenty more years. Read the foreword and chapter one for first class.
