       [Authorized Secretarial Signature. It was a common practice for M.L. King
       to have his secretary sign his books for him. We have it on good authority
       that this is the case with this book. See specifically the pointed ascenders
       in the letter 'M' of Martin. More often than not the MLK autographs being
       sold are in fact secretarial signatures.] This is a book about power-
       specifically, the power of a nonviolent army of determined Negroes who,
       with a smaller band of committed whites, have concluded that equality is
       not given but is taken, and that nothing but relentless pressure will ever
       achieve full citizenship for America's Negroes. Book#008887
