The papers of Martin Luther King, Jr. by Martin Luther King( Book )
18 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 1,890 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 The wealth of his writings, both published and unpublished, that constitute his intellectual legacy are now preserved in this authoritative, chronologically arranged, multivolume edition.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."--Jacket

In struggle : SNCC and the Black awakening of the 1960s by Clayborne Carson( Book )
33 editions published between 1981 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,677 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

After three centuries of oppression, black Americans had reached their limit. Tired of inferior schools, "Jim Crow" laws, and the threat of being lynched for trying to vote, African-Americans risked their lives for justice - most notably in the 1950s and '60s. Attorney Thurgood Marshall took school boards to the U.S. Supreme Court, which in 1954 rules against segregated schooling. Rosa Parks refused to yield her bus seat to a white man, triggering the Montgomery bus boycott. Thousands of activists, led by Martin Luther King Jr., staged marches, sit-ins, and Freedom Rides until Congress passed the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act in the mid-1960s. The book recounts the story of the Civil Rights Movement, from slavery up to the present day.

This light of ours : activist photographers of the civil rights movement by Leslie G Kelen( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 470 libraries worldwide
"This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement is a paradigm-shifting publication that presents the Civil Rights Movement through the work of nine activist photographers - men and women who chose to document the national struggle against segregation and other forms within the movement. Unlike images produced by photojournalists, who covered breaking news events, these photographers lived within the movement - and documented its activities by focusing on the student activists and local people who together made it happen. The core of the book is a selection of 151 black-and-white photographers Bob Adelman, George Ballis, Bob Fitch, Bob Fletcher, Matt Herron, David Prince, Herbert Randall, Maria Varela, and Tamio Wakayama. Images are grouped around four movement themes and convey SNCC's organizing strategies, resolve in the face of violence, impact on local and national politics, and influence on the nation's consciousness. The photographs and texts of This Light of Ours reminds us that the movement was a battleground, that the battle was successfully fought by thousands of "ordinary" Americans amongst whom were the nation's courageous youth, and that the movement's moral vision and impact continue to shape our lives."--Jacket

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
Martin's dream : my journey and the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. by Clayborne Carson( Book )
3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
On August 28, 1963 hundreds of thousands of demonstrators flocked to the nation's capital for the March in Washington for jobs and freedom, where dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. It was Clayborne Carson's first demonstration. Decades later, Coretta Scott King selected Dr. Carson - then a history professor at Stanford University to edit the papers of her late husband. He traces his own evolution from political activist to activist scholar. He vividly recalls his involvement in the movement's heyday and in the subsequent turbulent period when King's visionary Dream became real for some and remained unfulfilled for others. He recounts his conversations with key African Americans of the past half century, including Black Power firebrand Stokely Carmichael and dedicated organizers such as Ella Baker and Bob Moses. His description of his long-term relationship with Coretta Scott King sheds new light on her crucial role in preserving and protecting her late husband's legacy
