I'm not demeaning Rev. Kings role in combating injustice (he did pay the ultimate price) but I think he overshadowed others who perhaps took just as important role in this fight, i.e. Rev. Shuttlesworth in Birmingham. A good book on Rev. Kings role in the civil rights movement and 60's Birmingham is- Carry Me Home By Diane McWhorter.
