About Martin Luther King in Newcastle – Brian Ward

This book tells the inside story of Dr King’s visit to Newcastle and puts his spellbinding words into the context of 1960s British and US race relations. It also places Dr King’s visit within the history of links between the African American freedom struggle and the North East, showing how Dr King was one of many distinguished African American visitors to the region including Olaudah Equiano, Frederick Douglass, and later, Muhammad Ali and Harry Belafonte.
