Barely Four decades ago, America was at war with itself- a nation torn asunder by its inability to reconcile itself with its intrinsic self, fighting to find its own true identity, struggling to establish peace at global level but unable to do so in its own backyard. The kaleidoscope of colours that distinguished the various sections of the American people themselves whose mutual antipathy was the root cause of the centuries of internal conflicts, dissentions, contradictions and bloodshed, earned for itself the epithet of 'the nation of the murderers'- people who murdered their own President, shot its own Nobel Laureate, Killed its Budding presidential candidate, and a host of Black Nationalists. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi returned to India as a messiah to set the sun of the mighty British Empire. And 'Black America' found its own brand of Gandhi: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This book is the geo-politico-historical reviews of their struggle against colour-discrimination, under the leadership of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., following the foot steps of Indian Gandhis Mahatma Gandhi and Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan the 'Frontier Gandhi'.
