When he was a young man, Martin Luther King wanted a career helping people. He felt that as a minister he could speak out against racial injustice. Following the example of the Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. King chose nonviolence as the keystone of his fight for civil rights. Dr. King became a leader of the civil rights movement. In 1955, he helped to organize the famous Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott. Freedom rides, sit-ins, and protest marches strengthened the battle against discrimination. As a result of these, in 1964 the United States Congress passed the historic Civil Rights Bill. Dr. King received world acclaim when he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Congress has recently established a national holiday commemorating the birthday of this great man who courageously led a peaceful struggle for equal rights for all Americans. ; Mass Market PB; B&W Illustrations; 6.76 X 4.15 X 0.40 inches; 128 pages

8 Dubois, W. E. B. The Souls of Black Folk
US Penguin Classics 1996 014018998X / 9780140189988 Paperback Very Good+ 
Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. Du Bois' 1903 collection of essays is a thoughtful, articulate exploration of the moral and intellectual issues surrounding the perception of blacks within American society. Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review William Edward Burghardt Du Bois (1868-1963) is the greatest of African American intellectuals--a sociologist, historian, novelist, and activist whose astounding career spanned the nation's history from Reconstruction to the civil rights movement. Born in Massachusetts and educated at Fisk, Harvard, and the University of Berlin, Du Bois penned his epochal masterpiece, The Souls of Black Folk, in 1903. It remains his most studied and popular work; its insights into Negro life at the turn of the 20th century still ring true. With a dash of the Victorian and Enlightenment influences that peppered his impassioned yet formal prose, the book's largely autobiographical chapters take the reader through the momentous and moody maze of Afro-American life after the Emancipation Proclamation: from poverty, the neoslavery of the sharecropper, illiteracy, miseducation, and lynching, to the heights of humanity reached by the spiritual "sorrow songs" that birthed gospel and the blues. The most memorable passages are contained in "On Booker T. Washington and Others," where Du Bois criticizes his famous contemporary's rejection of higher education and accommodationist stance toward white racism: "Mr. Washington's programme practically accepts the alleged inferiority of the Negro races," he writes, further complaining that Washington's thinking "withdraws many of the high demands of Negroes as men and American citizens." The capstone of The Souls of Black Folk, though, is Du Bois' haunting, eloquent description of the concept of the black psyche's "double consciousness," which he described as "a peculiar sensation.... One ever feels this twoness--an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder." Thanks to W. E. B. Du Bois' commitment and foresight--and the intellectual excellence expressed in this timeless literary gem--black Americans can today look in the mirror and rejoice in their beautiful black, brown, and beige reflections. ; 5.1 x 0.5 x 7.8 inches; Ships within 24 hours.

9 Dyson, Michael Eric Making Malcolm The Myth and Meaning of Malcolm X
New York Oxford University Press 1995 019509235X / 9780195092356 Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Mylar and paper (Demco) protective cover. Dust jacket is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and without wear. Malcolm X's cultural rebirth--his improbable second coming--brims with irony. The nineties are marked by intense and often angry debates about racial authenticity and "selling out," and the participants in these debates--from politicians to filmmakers to rap artists--often draw on Malcolm's scorching rebukes to such moves. Meanwhile, Malcolm's "X" is marketed in countless business endeavors and is stylishly branded on baseball hats and T-shirts sported by every age, race, and gender. But this rampant commercialization is only a small part of Malcolm's remarkable renaissance. One of the century's most complex black leaders, he is currently blazing a new path across contemporary popular culture, and has even seared the edges of an academy that once froze him out. Thirty years after his assassination, what is it about his life and words that speaks so powerfully to so many? In Making Malcolm, Michael Eric Dyson probes the myths and meanings of Malcolm X for our time. From Spike Lee's film biography to Eugene Wolfenstein's psychobiographical study, from hip-hop culture to gender and racial politics, Dyson cuts a critical swathe through both the idolization and the vicious caricatures that have undermined appreciation of Malcolm's greatest accomplishments. The book's first section offers a boldly original and penetrating analysis of the major trends in interpreting Malcolm's legacy since his death, and the fiercely competing interests and ideologies that have shaped these trends. From mainstream books to writings published by the independent black press, Dyson identifies and examines the different "Malcolms" who have emerged in popular and academic investigations of his life and career: Malcolm as hero and saint; Malcolm as a public moralist; Malcolm as victim and vehicle of psychohistorical forces; and Malcolm as revolutionary figure. With impassioned and compelling force, Dyson argues that Malcolm was too formidable a historic figure--the movements he led too variable and contradictory, the passion and intelligence he summoned too extraordinary and disconcerting--to be viewed through any narrow cultural prism. The second half of the book offers a fascinating exploration of Malcolm's relationship to a resurgent black nationalism, his influence on contemporary black filmmakers and musicians, and his use in progressive black politics. From sexism and gangsta' rap to the painful predicament of black males, from the politics of black nationalism to the possibilities of race in the Age of Clinton, Dyson's trenchant and often inspiring analysis reveals how Malcolm's legacy continues to spur debate and action today.; 8.20 X 5.70 X 1 inches; 248 pages

11 Goodwin, June & Ben Schiff Heart of Whiteness Afrikaners Face Black Rule In the New South Africa
New York Scribner 1995 0684813653 / 9780684813653 First Edition; Second Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Remainder mark on bottom edge; otherwise Unmarked. ; Book Description; Mylar and paper (Demco) protective cover. Dust jacket is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and without wear. An oral history of the current state of South Africa, drawing from the voices of Afrikaners, examines how apartheid is now perceived as sinful, the role of the secret Broederbond in the nation's politics, and much more. Goodwin, a writer and former African correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor, and husband Schiff (politics, Oberlin Coll. ) interviewed over 125 Afrikaners in South Africa, selecting individuals from many political persuasions and from varying cultural and religious convictions. The overwhelming impression is one of great diversity within a group of people, the majority of whom still try to justify present and past apartheid beliefs. Two introductory sections are followed by detailed discussions of the Broederbond (the secret white male organization that ran the country under apartheid) , religion, the Afrikaans language, and the police state. A brief conclusion reflects on the present situation and prospects for the future. Because of the need to condense so much material, it is often unclear when one individual's views are being reflected if not directly quoted, when the authors' views are being expressed, and when the transition to another's views is made. The result is a book that does not add significantly to our knowledge of Afrikaners. As the bibliography indicates, many monographs have been written about each major subject here and, indeed, about many of the individuals covered. Still, this book will interest scholars studying the birth of apartheid, the complicated cultural rationalizations that produced such strong convictions, and the effect of current changes on this racist ideology.; Remainder; 9.55 X 6.46 X 1.13 inches; 416 pages

13 Hazlewood, Nick The Queen's Slave Trader John Hawkyns, Elizabeth I, and the Trafficking in Human Souls
New York William Morrow 2004 0066210895 / 9780066210896 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Dust Jacket is intact and covered in protective (Demco) plastic film and paper. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. Throughout history, blame for the introduction of slavery to America has been squarely placed upon the male slave traders who ravaged African villages, the merchants who auctioned off humans as if they were cattle, and the male slave owners who ruthlessly beat both the spirits and the bodies of their helpless victims. There is, however, above all these men, another person who has seemingly been able to avoid the blame that is due her. The origins of the English slave trade -- the result of which is often described as America's shame -- can actually be traced back to a woman, England's Queen Elizabeth I.; 9.10 X 6.20 X 1.50 inches; 384 pages

14 Hochschild, Adam Bury the Chains Prophets and Rebels in the Fight to Free an Empire's Slaves
New York Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2005 0618104690 / 9780618104697 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Dust Jacket is intact and covered in protective (Demco) plastic film and paper. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. From the author of the prize-winning King Leopold's Ghost comes a taut, thrilling account of the first grass-roots human rights campaign, which freed hundreds of thousands of slaves around the world. In 1787, twelve men gathered in a London printing shop to pursue a seemingly impossible goal: ending slavery in the largest empire on earth. Along the way, they would pioneer most of the tools citizen activists still rely on today, from wall posters and mass mailings to boycotts and lapel pins. This talented group combined a hatred of injustice with uncanny skill in promoting their cause. Within five years, more than 300,000 Britons were refusing to eat the chief slave-grown product, sugar; London's smart set was sporting antislavery badges created by Josiah Wedgwood; and the House of Commons had passed the first law banning the slave trade. However, the House of Lords, where slavery backers were more powerful, voted down the bill. But the crusade refused to die, fueled by remarkable figures like Olaudah Equiano, a brilliant ex-slave who enthralled audiences throughout the British Isles; John Newton, the former slave ship captain who wrote "Amazing Grace"; Granville Sharp, an eccentric musician and self-taught lawyer; and Thomas Clarkson, a fiery organizer who repeatedly crisscrossed Britain on horseback, devoting his life to the cause. He and his fellow activists brought slavery in the British Empire to an end in the 1830s, long before it died in the United States. The only survivor of the printing shop meeting half a century earlier, Clarkson lived to see the day when a slave whip and chains were formally buried in a Jamaican churchyard. Like Hochschild's classic King Leopold's Ghost, Bury the Chains abounds in atmosphere, high drama, and nuanced portraits of unsung heroes and colorful villains. Again Hochschild gives a little-celebrated historical watershed its due at last. ; 8.90 X 6.40 X 1.60 inches; 480 pages

15 Jones, LeRoi Blues People Negro Music in White America
New York William Morrow and Company 1968 Softcover Good+ 
Mild wear on edges and corners and rubbing on covers. Well bound, unmarked. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. The path the slave took to 'citizenship' is what I want to look at. And I make my analogy through the slave citizen's music -- through the music that is most closely associated with him: blues and a later, but parallel development, jazz... [If] the Negro represents, or is symbolic of, something in and about the nature of American culture, this certainly should be revealed by his characteristic music." So says Amiri Baraka in the Introduction to Blues People, his classic work on the place of jazz and blues in American social, musical, economic, and cultural history. From the music of African slaves in the United States through the music scene of the 1960's, Baraka traces the influence of what he calls "negro music" on white America -- not only in the context of music and pop culture but also in terms of the values and perspectives passed on through the music. In tracing the music, he brilliantly illuminates the influence of African Americans on American culture and history.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 235 pages

Ever since Nelson Mandela dramatically walked out of prison in 1990 after twenty-seven years behind bars, South Africa has been undergoing a radical transformation. In one of the most miraculous events of the century, the oppressive system of apartheid was dismantled. Repressive laws mandating separation of the races were thrown out. The country, which had been carved into a crazy quilt that reserved the most prosperous areas for whites and the most desolate and backward for blacks, was reunited. The dreaded and dangerous security force, which for years had systematically tortured, spied upon, and harassed people of color and their white supporters, was dismantled. But how could this country--one of spectacular beauty and promise--come to terms with its ugly past? How could its people, whom the oppressive white government had pitted against one another, live side by side as friends and neighbors? ; 8.19 X 5.59 X 0.94 inches; 423 pages
