When Horace and Julia Bond moved to Louisiana in 1934, they entered a world where the legacy of slavery was miscegenation, lingering paternalism, and deadly racism.

They were part of the "Explorer Project," sent to investigate the progress of the school in the Star Creek district of Washington Parish
Martin Luther King, Jr. by Adam Fairclough ( Book )
8 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 1,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During a public career spanning only twelve years, Martin Luther King, Jr., transformed the South - and the nation - and reinvigorated American democracy. From the pulpit and from jail, he inspired African Americans to rebel against white supremacy, nonviolently defying racism, bigotry, and brutality. He also sought a better way of life for all poor and powerless people, black and white alike. In this concise and readable biography, Adam Fairclough chronicles the major events of King's life and assesses his achievements as the preeminent leader of the civil rights movement. Throughout, Fairclough charts the major stages of King's philosophical and political growth, examining his opposition to the Vietnam War, his response to Black Power, and his growing concern for economic justice. Fairclough rounds out his portrait with an assessment of King's legacy to America and his continuing relevance to the struggle throughout the world for freedom and equality
Race & democracy : the civil rights struggle in Louisiana, 1915-1972 by Adam Fairclough ( Book )
9 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Race and Democracy is the first history of the civil rights movement in Louisiana. Central to Race and Democracy is Fairclough's argument that historians and the media, in their fascination with the action-oriented, youth-dominated 1960s, do not appreciate the full variety, depth, and durability of black protest. Moreover, by according higher visibility to the most "glamorous" aspects of the movement, they have neglected the crucial role of the NAACP. The dominant civil rights organization in the deep south before the mid-1950s, the NAACP had already amassed an impressive record of victories through litigation and fieldwork before SCLC, CORE, and SNCC arrived on the scene. In reassessing the role of the NAACP, Race and Democracy highlights the contributions of black lawyer Alexander Pierre Tureaud and the many extraordinarily brave men and women for whom the struggle for civil rights was a lifetime commitment. Race and Democracy includes careful analyses of white responses to the civil rights movement as expressed through political factions, trade unions, business lobbies, the Catholic Church, White Citizens Councils, and the Ku Klux Klan. As well as examining the leadership of three powerful governors - Huey Long, Earl Long, and John McKeithen - it describes the roles of such key individuals as federal judge Skelly Wright, Catholic archbishop Joseph Rummel, and racist politico Leander H. Perez. Throughout, Fairclough places the Louisiana movement in the context of such national trends and events as war, depression, McCarthyism, Black Power, and federal intervention. He concludes by surveying present-day Louisiana and assessing the political significance of David Duke

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Defining the term teacher broadly to include any person who taught students, whether in a backwoods cabin or the brick halls of a university, Fairclough illustrates the multifaceted responsibilities of individuals who were community leaders and frontline activists as well as conveyors of knowledge.
