Citizen King : 1963-1968( Visual )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This story begins on the steps on the Lincoln Memorial in August 1963 when a 34-year-old preacher galvanized millions with his dream for an America free of racism. It comes to a bloody end almost five years later on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee. In the years since those events unfolded, the man at the center, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has become a mythic figure, a minister whose oratory is etched into the minds of millions of Americans, a civil rights activist whose words and image are more hotly contested, negotiated and sold than almost anyone else's in American history
Quiet riots : race and poverty in the United States by Fred R Harris( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book grew out of the national conference "The Kerner Commission: Twenty Years Later." The Kerner Commission found in its 1968 Report that America was moving toward two separate and unequal societies, divided along racial lines, and that major efforts to combat poverty, unemployment, and racism were mandated. The essays in this book examine the persistence of racial and economic inequalities in American society. The book is divided into four parts. Part I, "The Kerner Reports of 1968," includes the following chapters: (1) "The 1967 Riots and the Kerner Commission" (Fred R. Harris); and (2) "The Kerner Report: a Journalist's View" (John Herbers). Part ii, "Today's Worsened Poverty," includes the following chapters: (3) "Poverty Is Still With Us--and Worse" (David Hamilton); and (4) "Blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, and Poverty--and What Worked" (Gary D. Sandefur). Part iii, "a Growing Urban Underclass," includes the following chapters: (5) "The Persistence of Urban Poverty" (Terry K. Adams and others); (6) "Separate Societies: Have the Kerner Warnings Come True?" (Gary Orfield); and (7) "The Ghetto Underclass and the Changing Structure of Urban Poverty" (William Julius Wilson and others). Part iv, "Conclusions and Recommendations," includes the following chapters: (8) "Thomas Jefferson, the Kerner Commission, and the Retreat of Folly" (Lynn A. Curtis); and (9) "Race and Poverty in the United States--and What Should Be Done," the report of the 1988 Commission on the States. Notes and sources, information on the contributors, and an index are appended. The book includes statistical information on 19 tables and five figures. (Af)
