In this four volume series, Hijacked!: How Dr. King's Dream Became a Nightmare, author Clarence Washington Sr. dissects Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream and explores how our failure to adhere to its principles has allowed the dream to be hijacked and turned to a nightmare—and it's time to wake up.
In the third volume of the Hijacked! collection, The Nightmare, the author details the devastating destruction of the lives of an enormous number of poor, disadvantaged, and middleclass people. This represents the destruction of the American way of life as a direct result of the hijack of Dr. King's dream—a dream that is so inseparably connected to the American dream.
Today, America could be depicted as a waning great person who is standing on the edge of a tall building at the top of the world, looking around in deep contemplation—not knowing exactly what to do next. If the winds of change blow too hard, this wavering person could lose their focus, fall, and plunge to their death—never again to regain their greatness.
To step back from the edge, we must all do our part to make King's dream a reality instead of watching it morph into something dark. The Nightmare, is an exposition of the tragic evidence of America's imminent loss of her exceptional nation status and the opportunity to make Dr. King’s dream a reality.
