"Clayborne Carson's compelling memoir is full of meaningful insights. This book is a must-read!"--Clarence Jones, author of "Behind the Dream"

"Clay Carson's compelling personal story confirms Coretta King's wisdom in entrusting the Martin Luther King papers to his care. We owe Clay a tremendous debt of gratitude for bringing us a richer understanding of Martin King and the philosophy of creative non-violence to which he gave his life. We are still on a journey to Martin's 'Beloved Community' and we are fortunate Clay Carson has shared his own journey with us." --Andrew Young, author of "Walk In My Shoes"


"Drawing from his personal journals and records, Carson offers a personal and candid account of his evolution from political activist into a self-described 'activist scholar' in his new book Martin's Dream."--"Black Christian News"

"[Carson] details his work on the vast number of King documents he and his colleagues have assembled, his complex interactions with the King family and others, and his evolving view of Dr. King -- from an African American civil rights leader to a farsighted visionary and revolutionary advocate for global peace, economic fairness and social justice. He also calls attention to the significant discoveries of the King Papers project that have received little public attention."--"History News Network"
