Black History Month -The tumult that shaped a hero

This item in the Christian Science monitor is a review of the final chapter in Taylor Branch's three part account of the rise of Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement. This book, which I am planning to buy soon, is a detailed account of King's final years as the head of the civil rights movement. It outlines just how difficult a task it was to define and create a movement, which I feel was the most significant event in American history. This is a must read. If you get the book before I do, tell me what I should focus on.
