Dream makers, dream breakers : the world of Justice Thurgood Marshall by Carl T Rowan( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With unprecedented access to hundreds of closed files of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, drawing upon countless conversations with Marshall over their forty-year friendship as well as exclusive interviews with him, Rowan chronicles Thurgood Marshall's reckless early years in Jim Crow Baltimore, his triumphs with the NAACP as the nation's most renowned civil rights lawyer - Marshall changed America by winning the landmark Brown v. Board of Education school segregation case in 1954 - and his stormy twenty-four-year tenure as a United States Supreme Court justice
The coming race war in America : a wake-up call by Carl T Rowan( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this hard-hitting polemic, one of America's best-known political commentators explains why racial tensions are now approaching critical mass - and points to what we must do to defuse the situation. Carl T. Rowan has spent his entire life fighting for racial justice. The Coming Race War in America names and pinpoints the issues that are tearing this country apart. Rowan blows the whistle on America's "gatekeepers"--In academia, media, and government - who fan the flames of racial hatred, whether intentionally or accidentally. He tears into demagogues who promote racial tensions, from Rush Limbaugh to Louis Farrakhan. And above all, he lambastes politicians who blame welfare mothers, immigrants, affirmative action, and the urban underclass for all of America's social ills - and reinforce a "hate-the-poor" mind-set that can only lead to disaster. Rowan explores the rising tensions in every stratum of society, from upper-class white-males protesting reverse discrimination to young black men desperate for a piece of the pie. He takes a hard look at how and why two African Americans - O.J. Simpson and Colin Powell - could inspire such disparate and emotionally charged reactions, and sees an omen of things to come. What's simmering now, he says, could soon boil over. The signs of the coming race war are everywhere, says Rowan, and there is no easy path to peace. But there is hope. By recognizing the full dimensions of the problem, well-intentioned Americans of all races can push for courses of action - from increased community involvement to greater support for education - that will help relieve tensions and build trust
