It's #BookTuesday!

Every Tuesday, Queens Library will introduce you to a great book!

Our #BookTuesday pick for January 16 is Kennedy and King: the President, the Pastor, and the Battle over Civil Rights by Steven Levingston.

"Kennedy and King" traces the emergence of two of the twentieth century's greatest leaders, and their powerful impact on each other and on the shape of the civil rights battle between 1960 and 1963. These two men from starkly different worlds profoundly influenced each other's personal development—Kennedy's hesitation on civil rights spurred King to greater acts of courage, and King inspired Kennedy to finally make a moral commitment to equality.

As America still grapples with the legacy of slavery and the persistence of discrimination, "Kennedy and King" is a vital, vivid contribution to the literature of the Civil Rights Movement.

"Steven Levingston's 'Kennedy and King' is an unqualified masterpiece of historical narrative...it might be the best dual biography I've ever read. A landmark achievement which elevates civil rights history into a high art form."―Douglas Brinkley, New York Times-bestselling author of "Rosa Parks"
