Martin Luther King Jr. Day reading suggestions

Tags: ,

I searched for Martin Luther King Jr. on the site and came up with two interesting looking books, both perhaps not surprisingly from our politically minded friends at PM Press.The first is We Have Not Been Moved: Resisting Racism and Militarism in 21st Century America by Elizabeth Betita Martínez et al. which is directly inspired by the work of King: “Among the historic texts included are rarely-seen writings by antiracist icons such as Anne Braden, Barbara Deming, and Audre Lorde, as well as a dialogue between Dr. King, revolutionary nationalist Robert F. Williams, Dave Dellinger, and Dorothy Day. Never-before-published pieces appear from civil rights and gay rights organizer Bayard Rustin and from celebrated U.S. pacifist supporter of Puerto Rican sovereignty Ruth Reynolds.”

The second book inspired by Dr. King is Waging Peace by David Hartsough and Joyce Hollyday and is filled with “Engaging stories on every page provide a peace activist’s eyewitness account of many of the major historical events of the past 60 years.”

Peace in our time!
