Mrs. Naomi Ruth Barber King, wife of Rev. A.D. King, the brother of martyred Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said that after many years of being asked to record the unknown history of the King brothers in a book, at the age of 81, she finally decided to share her knowledge. Her book, "A.D. and M.L. King: Two Brothers Who Dared To Dream," is quickly becoming a highly sought after memoir as a new generation seeks to understand the motivation behind Dr. King's tactic of non-violent direct action in confronting southern racial hate. The family endured much in order to bring about the historic changes in America. The sacrifice of the King family is much more understood and appreciated through the work of Mrs. King, whose insight and honesty those memorable moments in history to life.

On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. In 1965, he and the SCLC helped to organize the Selma to Montgomery marches, and the following year, he took the movement north to Chicago. In the years leading up to his death, he expanded his focus to include poverty and the Vietnam War, alienating many of his liberal allies with a 1967 speech titled "Beyond Vietnam". King was planning a national occupation of Washington, D.C., called the Poor People's Campaign.
