My mind set on freedom : a history of the civil rights movement, 1954-1968 by John A Salmond( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of the drive to free the American South from the shackles of legally sanctioned racial segregation. To chart the course of the American civil rights movement from 1954 to 1968 in fewer than 200 pages - and do it justice - is a remarkable accomplishment. This is what John Salmond has done, in a lively and compact narrative. Mr. Salmond sets the scene by looking at the first stirrings of black unrest prompted by New Deal policies in the 1930s and by the liberating experiences of blacks abroad and at home during World War II. He notes how labor activism; federal attempts at racial justice, and unheralded private initiatives after the war marked the beginnings of change in the South. Meanwhile the NAACP continued a sophisticated legal struggle to secure black equality through the courts. When the Supreme Court overturned school segregation in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision, the issue was joined for the South and the nation. Mr. Salmond traces the Southern opposition to change as it confronted a growing black militancy led by Martin Luther King, Jr., and others. Dramatic, often violent events captured the nation's attention. Ultimately the Kennedy administration responded to growing pressures. When Lyndon Johnson secured the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964, it was clear the movement had triumphed - yet it was also starting to unravel. In taking the story to the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968, Mr. Salmond explains the collapse of the civil rights movement but shows how it transformed the American South
After the dream : black and white southerners since 1965 by Timothy J Minchin( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martin Luther King's 1965 address from Montgomery, Alabama, the center of much racial conflict at the time and the location of the well-publicized bus boycott a decade earlier, is often considered by historians to be the culmination of the civil rights era in American history. In his momentous speech, King declared that segregation was "on its deathbed" and that the movement had already achieved significant milestones. Although the civil rights movement had won many battles in the struggle for racial equality by the mid-1960s, including legislation to guarantee black voting rights and to desegregate public accommodations, the fight to implement the new laws was just starting. In reality, King's speech in Montgomery represented a new beginning rather than a conclusion to the movement, a fact that King acknowledged in the address. After the Dream: Black and White Southerners since 1965 begins where many histories of the civil rights movement end, with King's triumphant march from the iconic battleground of Selma to Montgomery. Timothy J. Minchin and John Salmond focus on events in the South following the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. After the Dream examines the social, economic, and political implications of these laws in the decades following their passage, discussing the empowerment of black southerners, white resistance, accommodation and acceptance, and the nation's political will. The book also provides a fascinating history of the often-overlooked period of race relations during the presidential administrations of Ford, Carter, Reagan, and both George H.W. and George W. Bush. Ending with the election of President Barack Obama, this study will influence contemporary historiography on the civil rights movement
Gastonia, 1929 : the story of the Loray Mill Strike by John A Salmond( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of the wave of labor strikes that swept through the South in 1929, the one at the Loray Mill in Gastonia, North Carolina, is perhaps the best remembered. In Gastonia 1929 John Salmond provides the first detailed account of the complex events surrounding the strike at the largest textile mill in the Southeast. His compelling narrative unravels the confusing story of the shooting of the town's police chief, the trials of the alleged killers, the unsolved murder of striker and balladeer Ella May Wiggins, and the strike leaders' conviction and subsequent flight to the Soviet Union."--Jacket

Yet, barely eighteen months later, with 300,000 dues-paying members, with newly established or revived branches covering southern cotton textile workers, as well as northern woolen and worsted workers, silk and jacquard weavers, dyers and finishers, even rayon workers, and with locals in 208 cities, towns, and mill villages, the UTW was about to embark on what one historian has termed "the greatest single industrial conflict in the history of American labor." The General Textile Strike of 1934 is the story of that conflict."
