Burial for a King : Martin Luther King Jr.'s funeral and the week that transformed Atlanta and rocked the nation by Rebecca Burns( Book )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 730 libraries worldwide
In the aftermath of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination, riots broke out in 110 cities across the country. For five days, Atlanta braced for chaos while preparing to host King's funeral. An unlikely alliance of former student radicals, the middle-aged patrician mayor, the no-nonsense police chief, black ministers, white churchgoers, Atlanta's business leaders, King's grieving family members, and his stunned SCLC colleagues worked to keep Atlanta safe, honor a murdered hero, and host the tens of thousands who came to pay tribute. Compelling and original, this book captures a defining moment in America's history. It encapsulates King's legacy, America's shifting attitude toward race, and the emergence of Atlanta as a new kind of Southern city
