From the publisher

Martin Luther King Jr is a political visionary, human rights activist, preacher, scholar and martyr.
Chaym Smith is his dark mirror, a violent, cynical criminal with a mind and talent to mimic King's. When Smith begins to act as King's double at rallies, the contradictions and strange similarities between the two men set one question into sharp focus - is evil inherent or a product of circumstance?

Dreamer is a multi-layered masterpiece, capturing Civil Rights-era America in a snapshot of racism and brutality, revolution and hope.
