Parting the Waters

America in the King Years, Part I - 1954-63

Read by: CCH Pounder and Joe Morton
  • 1award
Hailed as the most masterful story ever told of the American civil rights movement, Parting the Waters is destined to endure for generations.

This audio adaptation focuses primarily on Martin Luther King, Jr. and the key moments that defined his rise to the forefront of the civil rights movement. From Rosa Parks' monumental arrest in Montgomery to King's imprisonment in Birmingham and his triumphant march on Washington, Taylor Branch provides an unsurpassed portrait of King's rise to greatness. He illuminates the stunning courage and private conflict, the deals, maneuvers, betrayals, and rivalries that determined history behind closed doors, at boycotts and sit-ins, on bloody freedom rides, and through siege and murder.
