STRIDE TOWARD FREEDOM: The Montgomery
The classic story of nonviolent resistance in America the Montgomery bus boycott written by Martin
Luther King, Jr.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s account of the first
successful large-scale application of nonviolent resistance in America is
comprehensive, revelatory, and intimate. 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.” It traces the
phenomenal journey of a community, and shows how the twenty-six-year-old King,
with his conviction for equality and nonviolence, helped transform the nation
and the world.
