A fire you can't put out the civil rights life of Birmingham's Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth by Andrew Michael Manis ( )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 2,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From his 1956 founding of the Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights through the historic demonstrations of 1963, driven by a sense of divine mission, Shuttlesworth pressured Jim Crow restrictions in Birmingham with radically confrontational acts of courage. His intensive campaign pitted him against the staunchly segregationist police commissioner Eugene "Bull" Connor and ultimately brought him to the side of Martin Luther King, Jr., and to the inner chambers of the Kennedy White House."

Southern civil religions in conflict : civil rights and the culture wars by Andrew Michael Manis ( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book, Andrew Manis shows how two conflicting civil religions emerged in the South during the civil rights movement, each with its own understanding of America's calling and destiny as a nation. Using black and white Baptists in the South as case studies, Manis interprets the civil rights movement as a civil religious conflict between Southerners with opposing understandings of America. Originally published in 1987, this new, expanded edition further argues that the civil rights movement and its opposition, with their conflicting images and hopes for America, foreshadowed the ongoing "culture wars" of recent days."--BOOK JACKET

Macon Black and White : an unutterable separation in the American century by Andrew Michael Manis ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A longitudinal study of race relations in a major Southern city, Macon Black and White examines the ways white and black Maconites interacted over the course of the entire twentieth century. Beginning in the 1890s, in what has been called the "nadir of race relations in America," Andrew M. Manis traces the arduous journey toward racial equality in the heart of Central Georgia. The book describes how, despite incremental progress toward that goal, segregationist pressures sought to silence voices for change on both sides of the color line."--BOOK JACKET
