Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King, Jr. described Stride Toward Freedom as "the chronicle of 50,000 Negroes who took to heart the principles of non-violence, who learned to fight for their rights with the weapon of love, and who, in the process, acquired a new estimate of their own human worth."

On December 1st, 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white passenger on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama.

Reviews for Stride Toward Freedom

'Telling the inspiring story of the Civil Rights movement... A very important and moving book which tells the story of the movement that transported and changed not only America but globally.'

'It's still shocking to read this account, detailing the overt racism of the time...King, of course, was one of the finest orators of the 20th century, but passion pours from his pen, too.'
