Carson, founding director of the Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute, provides a reference for students, teachers, researchers, and general readers in high school and up. Based on the extensive historical research originally conducted by the staff of the Institute's Papers Project to produce annotations for the published volumes of King's papers, the encyclopedia draws heavily on the Papers Project's vast collection of primary source documents related to King and the movement he inspired. Quotations from these documents are included in many entries. The encyclopedia begins with a chronology, followed by a short narrative introduction. The entries give information on African American leaders, members of King's family and his personal and professional associates, theological and political sources of influence, celebrities who supported his protest campaigns, and political allies and opponents. Major events in King's life also have their own entries. The 285 entries are arranged alphabetically. Each entry is followed by a list of sources, which contains secondary literature and primary documents. B&w historical photos are included. Carson teaches history at Stanford University.
