The repressive climate of racial hatred in America that spawned the 1960s civil rights movement also galvanized a generation of African-American leaders who embodied the qualities of servant leadership. Williams follows the lives of six leaders of the civil rights cause: A. Philip Randolph, Frederick D. Patterson, Thurgood Marshall, Whitney M. Young, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., and Fannie Lou Hamer. In these profiles, Williams reveals the legacy of servant leadership they embodied. This text paints a portrait of an entire generation and those who came forth to lead them in the struggle for basic civil rights, recapturing their legacy and drawing lessons for today's leaders.
