    High School & Up

    Half a century after some of its most important moments, the assessment of the Civil Rights Era continues. In A Child Shall Lead Them, Dr. Rufus Burrow turns his attention to a less investigated but critically important byway in this powerful story - the role of children and young people in the Civil Rights Movement.

    What role did young people play, and how did they support the efforts of their elders? What did they see - and what did they do? - that their elders were unable to envision? How did children play their part in the liberation of their people?

    In this project, Burrow reveals the surprising power of youth to change the world.

    A professor of history and the noted author and editor of several books on the civil rights struggle, Dr. Clayborne Carson was selected by the estate of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to edit and publish Dr. King's papers. Drawing upon an unprecendented archive of King's own words--including unpublished letters and diaries, as well as video footage and recordings--Dr. Carson creates an unforgettable self-portrait of Dr. King. In his own vivid, compassionate voice, here is Martin Luther King, Jr., as student, minister, husband, father, and world leader...we well as a rich, moving chronicle of a people and a nation in the face of powerful--and still resonating--change. Paperback.

    Eloquent and passionate, reasoned and sensitive, this pair of meditations by the revered civil rights leader contains the theological roots of his political and social philosophy of nonviolent activism. Includes "What Is Man?" and "The Dimensions of a Complete Man", as well as photos of Martin Luther King Jr.

    "If there is one book Martin Luther King, Jr. has written that people consistently tell me has changed their lives, it is Strength to Love."

    So wrote Coretta Scott King. She continued: "I believe it is because this book best explains the central element of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s philosophy of nonviolence: His belief in a divine, loving presence that binds all life." That insight, luminously conveyed in this classic text, here presented in a new and attractive edition, hints at the personal transformation at the root of social justice: "By reaching into and beyond ourselves and tapping the transcendent moral ethic of love, we shall overcome these evils."

    In these short meditative and sermonic pieces, some of them composed in jails and all of them crafted during the tumultuous years of the Civil Rights struggle, Dr. King articulated and espoused in a deeply personal compelling way his commitment to justice and to the intellectual, moral, and spiritual conversion that makes his work as much a blueprint today for Christian discipleship as it was then.

    Individual readers, as well as church groups and students will find in this work a challenging yet energizing vision of God and redemptive love.

    In these eloquent essays, noted scholar and activist Vincent Harding reflects on the forgotten legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his message for today.

    In 1963, Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. launched the Civil Rights movement and demonstrated to the world the power of nonviolent direct action.

Dr. King's eloquent analysis of these events propelled the Civil Rights movement from lunch counter sit-ins and prayer marches to the forefront of the American consciousness.

    This groundbreaking work provides a unique look a King's never-before-published early sermons, drawn from a private file of materials King kept in his study and used to prepare his homilies.

A battered cardboard box held a trove of sermon notes, outlines and full sermon texts from the years up to and including King's involvement in the Montgomery bus boycott in 1956, a period for which few of King's religious writings had been available previously.
