Spanning nearly 400 years from the early abolitionists to the present, this guide book profiles more than 400 people, places, and events that have shaped the history of the black struggle for freedom. Coverage includes information on such mainstays as Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Rosa Parks, but also delves into how lesser known figures, such as the Housewives' League of Detroit and Samuel Harold Lacy, contributed to and shaped the history of civil rights. This comprehensive resource chronicles the breadth and passion of an entire people's quest for freedom.
