KING IN MONTGOMERY, ALA.

King speaks in 1957, when he was pastor of Dexter Avenue Baptist Church. In the new “The Word of the Lord Is Upon Me,” author Jonathan Rieder, a Barnard College sociologist, focuses on King’s language. A review in The Times’ Book Review says the result “is an extended meditation on the deeper meanings of the civil rights leader’s words and how he used them.”
