Dreamer by Charles Johnson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Chaym Smith is the double of Martin Luther King. Not only does Smith resemble King physically, but he also shares his intellectual voracity: widely read in Eastern and Western philosophy, proficient in Sanskrit and martial arts and a talented painter. And yet, while King aspires to make a difference, Smith is a cynic. When Smith becomes King's stand-in, Johnson creates a taut drama in which he explores issues long at the heart of the race issue.
