  1. Thank you Doug Most, for this insightful article. I loved reading about Dr King’s Boston history, especially having had spent my years in Boston during undergrad, and now post-grad at BU. What a beautiful contribution to his biography! I’m sure many have enjoyed your chronicles of his life and important markers of which we may not have been aware. I am a Howard Thurman fan, so it was also nice to have that confirmation in your story of his relationship with Dr. King. Bless you!
