RT Generic DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 659839292 LA English T1 The good fight : James Farmer remembers the civil rights movement A1 Streitfeld, Andy., Schoenbaechler, Jessica., AMS Pictures., PB AMS Pictures PP Dallas, Texas YR 2009 AB "A relentless leader, a dynamic speaker, and a forceful organizer, Farmer was one of the first civil rights activists to use nonviolent direct action to fight for dignity and justice. Yet at what cost? His own family suffered from his frequent absences, prison stays, and threats made on his life. And, he was continually disappointed in his lack of recognition, especially after witnessing the momentous legacy of Martin Luther King, a man ten years his junior. The Good Fight chronicles Farmer's life from his earliest days as a "Great Debater" at Wiley College, to his legacy teaching a new generation of students about the movement that shaped a country."---Back of Container.
