The papers of Martin Luther King, Jr. by Martin Luther King( Book )
20 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 1,949 libraries worldwide
"More than two decades after his death, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s ideas - his call for racial equality, his faith in the ultimate triumph of justice, and his insistence on the power of nonviolent struggle to bring about a major transformation of American society - are as vital and timely as ever. The wealth of his writings, both published and unpublished, that constitute his intellectual legacy are now preserved in this authoritative, chronologically arranged, multivolume edition. Faithfully transcribing the texts of his letters, speeches, sermons, student papers, and articles, this edition has no equal." "Volume II begins with King's doctoral work at Boston University and ends with his first year as pastor of the historic Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. It includes papers from his graduate courses and a fully annotated text of his dissertation. There is correspondence with people King knew in his years before graduate school and a transcription of the first known recording of a King sermon. We learn, too, of King's marriage to Coretta Scott." "Accepting the call to serve Dexter, King followed the church's tradition of socially active pastors by becoming involved in voter registration and other issues of social justice. In Montgomery he completed his doctoral work, and he and Coretta Scott began their married life." "King's early papers document the formative experiences of a man whose life and teachings have had a profound influence not only on Americans but on people of all nations."--BOOK JACKET

In struggle : SNCC and the Black awakening of the 1960s by Clayborne Carson( Book )
28 editions published between 1981 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,837 libraries worldwide
With its radical ideology and effective tactics, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) was the cutting edge of the civil rights movement during the 1960s. This sympathetic yet even-handed book records for the first time the complete story of SNCC's evolution, of its successes and its difficulties in the ongoing struggle to end white repression. At its birth, SNCC was composed of black college students who shared an ideology of moral radicalism. This ideology, with its emphasis on nonviolence, challenged Southern segregation. SNCC students were the earliest civil rights fighters of the Second Reconstruction. They conducted sit-ins at lunch counters, spearheaded the freedom rides, and organized voter registration, which shook white complacency and awakened black political consciousness. In the process, Carson shows, SNCC changed from a group that endorsed white middle-class values to one that questioned the basic assumptions of liberal ideology and raised the fist for black power. Indeed, SNCC's radical and penetrating analysis of the American power structure reached beyond the black community to help spark wider social protests of the 1960s, such as the anti-Vietnam War movement. Carson's history of SNCC goes behind the scene to determine why the group's ideological evolution was accompanied by bitter power struggles within the organization. Using interviews, transcripts of meetings, unpublished position papers, and recently released FBI documents, he reveals how a radical group is subject to enormous, often divisive pressures as it fights the difficult battle for social change

In The Black Panthers Speak, the best single source of original material on and by the Black Panther Party, Philip S. Foner separates philosophy from propaganda. The essential documents of the Party are all here, including "What We Want, What We Believe," Newton and Seale's seminal treatise, which became a standard to gauge society's progress. With their passionate demands, Seale and Newton succinctly captured the revolutionaly spirit and aspirations of many American blacks in the 1960s and 1970s. Foner includes illuminating excerpts from The Black Panther, the newspaper that proved so instrumental in the Party's rapid growth and development. His careful selection of cartoons, original flyers, and articles by members of various ranks allows a glimpse inte the black consciousness of the late 1960s, as do the voices of Panther leaders Eldridge Cleaver, David Hilliard, Fred Hampton, and Erica Huggins
