内容説明

First published for the fortieth anniversary of the March on Washington, this Library of America volume along with its companion chronicles over thirty tumultuous years in the struggle of African-Americans for freedom and equal rights. The first volume follows the rise of the modern civil rights movement from A. Philip Randolph's defiant 1941 call for a protest march on Washington to the summer of 1963 and the eve of the march that finally shook the nation's conscience. Ralph Ellison, Langston Hughes, Pauli Murray, and Bayard Rustin record the growing determination of African-Americans in the 1940s to oppose racial injustice; Murray Kempton and William Bradford Huie report on the lynching of Emmett Till; Ted Poston offers an inside look at the courage and resourcefulness of the Montgomery bus boycotters; Relman Morin in Little Rock and John Steinbeck in New Orleans witness the terrors of mob rage; David Halberstam and Louis Lomax describe the wildfire spread of the sit-in movement; James Baldwin investigates the Nation of Islam. Robert Penn Warren's "Segregation," a Southern moderate's soul-searching interrogation of the traditions of his native region, is included in its entirety, as is Martin Luther King, Jr.'s classic defense of civil disobedience, "Letter from Birmingham Jail." Remarkable but little-known reporters from the African-American press, among them James Hicks of the Amsterdam News, George Collins of the Baltimore Afro-American, L. O. Swingler of the Atlanta Daily World, and Trezzvant Anderson of the Pittsburgh Courier, are reprinted here for the first time, along with astonishing eyewitness accounts of movement activism by Fannie Lou Hamer, Tom Hayden, and Howard Zinn. Each volume contains a detailed chronology of events, biographical profiles and photographs of the journalists, explanatory notes, and an index. LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation's literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America's best and most significant writing. The Library of America series includes more than 300 volumes to date, authoritative editions that average 1,000 pages in length, feature cloth covers, sewn bindings, and ribbon markers, and are printed on premium acid-free paper that will last for centuries.

内容説明

This Library of America volume, along with its companion, offers a uniquely panoramic perspective of the fight to bring an end to racial segregation in the United States. It gathers the work of over 150 diverse writers, representing the best in American journalism. This second volume charts the movement's course from the historic 1963 March on Washington through the violence of the late 1960s to the complex reflections of the early 1970s. Karl Fleming and James D. Williams report on the murder of four young girls in the Birmingham church bombing; John Hersey and Alice Lake bear witness to Mississippi's "Freedom Summer"; Andrew Kopkind, Elizabeth Hardwick, and Renata Adler offer impressions of the Selma-to-Montgomery March; Robert Richardson, Jimmy Breslin, and Bob Clark capture the chaos of the Watts and Detroit riots. At the 1966 Meredith March, Paul Good observes the tension emerging between believers in non-violent resistance and advocates of the new Black Power. Gordon Parks responds to the assassination of Malcolm X; Joan Didion, Gilbert Moore, and Nora Sayre evoke the phenomenon of the Black Panthers. Earl Caldwell, the only reporter present, describes King's assassination, while Garry Wills and Pat Waters detail its traumatic aftermath. Willie Morris and Marshall Frady look at integration in the new South, while Tom Wolfe caustically explores new forms of racial confrontation and Richard Margolis depicts the emergence of a new consciousness among African-American college students. Each volume contains a detailed chronology of events, biographical profiles and photographs of the journalists, explanatory notes, and an index.
