Letter From Birmingham Jail

Martin Luther King, Jr., read by Dion Graham. Mission Audio, unabridged, one CD, 1 hr., $5.98 ISBN 978-1-61045-748-4
“But since I feel that you are men of genuine good will and your criticisms are sincerely set forth, I would like to answer your statement in what I hope will be patient and reasonable terms.” This simple, yet utterly powerful intro to what is surely one of the most important letters in the history of the United States instantly transports listeners to the prison cell where Martin Luther King Jr. penned this masterful epistle. Narrator Dion Graham bends his voice to adjust to the smooth, southern tones of King, instilling in the listener an immediate sense of importance and nostalgia. Graham’s delivery is stellar. He reads the words as Martin Luther King Jr. likely would have and, in turn, Dr. King’s message is conveyed with great care and compassion. A truly rousing performance. An Overbrook paperback. (Apr.)
