Stride Toward Freedom (Paperback)


Martin Luther King, Jr.'s account of the first successful large-scale application of nonviolent resistance in America is comprehensive, revelatory, and intimate. In his first book, King delineates racial conditions in Montgomery before, during, and after the bus boycott which lasted from December 15, 1955, until December 21, 1956. He discusses the origin and significance of the boycott; the roles that residents, civic and church leaders, and community organizations played in organizing and sustaining the movement; and the reactions of white Montgomery officials and residents.
