Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Preserving the legacy of one of the twentieth century s most influential advocates for peace and justice, The Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr., is described by one historian as being the equivalent to a conversation with King. To Save the Soul of America, the seventh volume of the anticipated fourteen-volume edition, provides an unprecedented glimpse into King s early relationship with President John F. Kennedy and his efforts to remain relevant in a protest movement growing increasingly massive and militant. Following Kennedy s inauguration in January 1961, King s high expectations for the new administration gave way to disappointment as the president hesitated to commit to comprehensive civil rights legislation. As the initial Freedom Ride catapulted King into the national spotlight in May, tensions with student activists affiliated with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) were exacerbated after King refused to participate in subsequent freedom rides. These tensions became more evident after King accepted an invitation in December 1961 to help the SNCC-supported Albany Movement in southwest Georgia. King s arrests in Albany prompted widespread national press coverage for the protests there, but he left with minimal tangible gains. During 1962 King worked diligently to improve the effectiveness of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) by hiring new staff and initiating grassroots outreach. King also increased his influence by undertaking an overcrowded schedule of appearances, teaching a course at Morehouse College, and participating in an additional round of protests in Albany during July 1962. As King confronted these difficult challenges, he learned valuable lessons that would later impact his efforts to desegregate Birmingham, Alabama, in 1963. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : Preserving the legacy of one of the twentieth century's most influential advocates for peace and justice, The Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr., is described by one historian as being the "equivalent to a conversation" with King. To Save the Soul of America, the seventh volume of the anticipated fourteen-volume edition, provides an unprecedented glimpse into King's early relationship with President John F. Kennedy and his efforts to remain relevant in a protest movement growing increasingly massive and militant. Following Kennedy's inauguration in January 1961, King's high expectations for the new administration gave way to disappointment as the president hesitated to commit to comprehensive civil rights legislation. As the initial Freedom Ride catapulted King into the national spotlight in May, tensions with student activists affiliated with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) were exacerbated after King refused to participate in subsequent freedom rides. These tensions became more evident after King accepted an invitation in December 1961 to help the SNCC-supported Albany Movement in southwest Georgia. King's arrests in Albany prompted widespread national press coverage for the protests there, but he left with minimal tangible gains. During 1962 King worked diligently to improve the effectiveness of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) by hiring new staff and initiating grassroots outreach. King also increased his influence by undertaking an overcrowded schedule of appearances, teaching a course at Morehouse College, and participating in an additional round of protests in Albany during July 1962. As King confronted these difficult challenges, he learned valuable lessons that would later impact his efforts to desegregate Birmingham, Alabama, in 1963.

Critique: "An essential read for students of King." -- Hope Wabuke The Root 20141125 "A definitive collection of interviews, speeches, and correspondence." THE BEST BOOKS ABOUT THE VOLATILE '60S -- Scott Porch Daily Beast 20141219 "Carson has dedicated his life's work to recovering the authentic voice of King, and in this latest volume, he and Armstrong capture King's life through a multifaceted approach, including a detailed chronology of King's life, a calendar of documents accompanied with select photographs, and documents resuscitating the dogged determination of the civil rights leader. This volume creates a word picture of the era in which King lived, and the reproductions of handwritten notes also give a textured feel to the intellectual evolution of King. The annotation of people, places, and events is exhaustive and good roughage for students, scholars, and interested laypersons... provide[s] an educational moment for all persons interested in truth, justice, history, and knowledge." -- Ida E. Jones Washington Independent Review of Books 20141121
