Birth of a Dream
I still think this is one of the best books written about King and the origins of the Civil Rights Movement. My big moment came in documenting the Sixteenth St. Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, for the Historical American Buildings Survey. It gave a much deeper sense of the events that shaped the movement. It was also the summer I read the book.
