Jeanne Theoharis’s A More Beautiful and Terrible History: The Uses and Misuses of Civil Rights History has earned impressive media coverage and praise since its January 30th release. Now, as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the book continues to be spotlighted, including in a recent New York Times write-up about three new documentaries on Dr. King. The Times has been a fan of the book from the start, with a daily section review followed by a book recommendation listing. Other coverage includes praise from O Magazine, Bitch, and Slate, a Q&A in Pacific Standard , excerpts in LitHub, Ms., The Guardian, Religion Dispatches, and Salon, and articles by the author in Time.com, and in The Atlantic and Boston Review special King issues. Radio interviews have included NPR’s Weekend All Things Considered, WNYC’s Midday, and Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now! Bill Goldstein gave the book a big thumbs up on his NBC New York segment and Trevor Noah gave it a shout out on The Daily Show.
