Marshall Frady (1940-2004) was an American journalist noted for his coverage of the U.S. Civil Rights movement and for several books about the prominent figures in that struggle, including biographies of Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King Jr. His first book, Wallace, is considered a classic work of American history.
