Description

The classic story of nonviolent resistance in America--the Montgomery bus boycott--written by Martin Luther King, Jr.

In early 1957, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., set out to write about the Montgomery bus boycott. King described his book as "the chronicle of 50,000 Negroes who took to heart the principles of nonviolence, 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.''

Released the next year, "Stride Toward Freedom" was lauded by the general public and literary critics, often labeled "must reading." Unavailable for almost a decade, King's unparalleled historical account of the first successful large-scale application of nonviolent resistance in America is now must reading for a new generation of readers. In this revelatory work, King shares ideas of the thinkers, like Gandhi, who profoundly influenced him, and why.
