Hear the fascinating story of King’s 1967 visit to Newcastle set against the way the north east has responded to race and race relations from the slave trade right up to the influence of Donald Trump.

Brian Ward reveals for the first time the full inside story of Martin Luther King’s historic 1967 visit to Newcastle, placing it within the context of King’s own career and a long tradition of progressive social activism on Tyneside and across the North East.

“This important book is as timely as it is compelling.”
