CIVIL RIGHTS

MLK, Jr. Books to Be Republished

In a new deal brokered by Martin Luther King, Jr.'s youngest son, Dexter King, Beacon Press has agreed to republish four books by the legendary civil rights leader, all of which have long been out of print. Dexter King called it a historic partnership that will bring his father's words to a global audience, the Associated Press reports. The Boston-based publisher—a department of the Unitarian Universalist Association—will release new editions of Stride Toward Freedom, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?, Trumpet of Conscience, and Strength to Love in 2010.
