Driving the King by Ravi Howard

04/06/2015

Driving the KingThe dialogue of the characters is spot on and their restrained love and respect is tangible. This is a well researched book with a significant number of intersections of prominent historical figures that in another authors hands would feel contrived. I only wish that I was better educated on the history of the civil rights movement, as I would have been able to enjoy the story more if I knew more about the historical personalities described. While there is a beautiful romance woven throughout, I read this book as an ode to our elders, as a love story based in struggle, activism, and community. Ultimately this book is about making a life for yourself despite any hardships met along the way and remembering where you came from.
