Centered on the topic of racial segregation in the United States, Strength to Love was Dr. King's first volume of sermons, published the same year in which he penned his 'Letter from a Birmingham Jail' and delivered his famous 'I have a dream' speech at the historic March on Washington. A beautiful presentation copy of this significant work made all the more desirable by its crisp penmanship and lack of inscription.
