Four biographies are presented by award-winning historian Jules Archer as the encapsulation of the Civil Rights struggle. Frederick Douglass agitated for slaves' freedom; Marcus Garvey helped develop black nationalism and pride as black people struggled to overcome prejudice; Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcom X were both prominent during the 1960s Civil Rights struggle, though they advocated for rights in very different ways. All very unique men who advocated for various rights through time, these men provided the leadership and pride throughout the Civil Rights Movement. 258 pages, indexed, softcover.
Traces the progression of the civil rights movement and its effect on history through biographical sketches of four prominent and influential African Americans: Frederick Douglass, Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X.
