Item Description: We do not recall ever seeing a more powerful statement in the hand of Dr. King having reached the market Martin Luther King, Jr. took much of his inspiration from the non-violent campaigns of civil disobedience of Gandhi and Henry David Thoreau. To him, this non-violent struggle was intertwined with the idea of freedom from oppression, and justice and equality under the law. Around these beliefs, King created the nationÕs most effective Civil Rights movement movement, one that greatly advanced the cause of equal rights and led to the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. The idea of non-violence in pursuit of morality is forever tied to his legacy, and the legacy of the Civil Rights movement. It is one of the great and inspiring messages of the 20th century. With the goal of redeeming ÔÔthe soul of AmericaÕÕ through nonviolent resistance, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) was established in 1957 to coordinate the action of local protest groups throughout the South. King headed the group from its founding until his death in 1968. ÔÔThis conference is called,ÕÕ King wrote, ÔÔbecause we have no moral choice, before God, but to delve deeper into the struggleÑand to do so with greater reliance on non-violence.ÕÕIn the summer of 1967, William Ives, an African American supporter in Brooklyn, wrote to King, sending a donation of $20 for the SCLC and also $5 for KingÕs newly released book. He asked King to autograph him for it, which King did.Book signed, ÒWhy We CanÕt Wait,Ó no date but July-August 1967, inscribed to ÒWilliam M. Ives.Ó ÒIn appreciation for your support of the non-violent struggle for freedom and justice. Martin L. King Jr.ÓThis message must have moved its recipient. Ives has added an image of King at the beginning and also of his family members at the end. It is clear that this was a personally meaningful cause and treasured object of the Ives family.We do not recall ever seeing a more powerful statement in the hand of Dr. King having reached the market. Generally his quotations are typed out and signed.Less than one year later, King was dead by an assassinÕs bullet. Bookseller Inventory # 11052

Item Description: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1958. Hardcover. First edition. 230pp. Faint dampstain tidemark in the very upper margins of the pages and jacket flaps, just touching a few letters on the rear flap, but otherwise affecting no text, else very good in spine-faded, about very good dustwrapper with modest chips at the spine ends. Author's first book, the story of the Montgomery Bus Strike and the ensuing action surrounding it, written when he was 29 years old. Warmly Inscribed by Dr. King using most of the front fly: "To: Dr. John W. Davis, In appreciation for your great contribution to the world of education, your humanitarian concern, and your devotion to the cause of freedom and justice. Martin L. King, Jr." Dr. John Warren Davis was born in 1888 in Georgia, and was a member of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, the same Church where Dr. King was first called to the ministry and helped to launch his career. In 1954 Dr. King accepted his first pastorate at Dexter. Dr. Davis was an associate of both Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois both of whom he met when he attended Morehouse College, and where he also taught. In 1919 he was named President of West Virginia State University, which had only 21 students - that number grew to 1900 by the time he left in 1953, and where he hosted virtually every important African-American luminary during that period. He was a keynote speaker, along with Thurgood Marshall at the 1955 convention of the American Teachers Association, and was a past President of the ATA, and also served in several capacities at the NEA, as well as being engaged with the National Science Foundation and NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. The book *Black Colleges and Universities: Challenges for the Future* (Praeger, 1984) is dedicated to him. Boston University Special Collections apparently housed a mimeograph of Dr. Davis's order form for this copy of the book. Dr. King's admiration for Davis is palpable, and this book helps to shed some modest light on a relationship about which little seems to be known. Bookseller Inventory # 394202

Item Description: 1970. Hardcover. Autograph album. Oblong 12mo. Red leather album with "Autographs" in gilt on front board and blank pages. Each of the pages has been careful and artistically folded (as issued?), when a page was used it was unfolded. Ownership signature of Kira Vivian, daughter of Civil Rights pioneer C.T. Vivian, Blackstone Ranger, Freedom Rider, and one of the chief lieutenants of Dr. King during the Civil Rights Struggle. Inscribed by Kira Vivian to herself on the front fly, in girlish fashion. Leaves are creased where they've been unfolded, else condition overall is fine. Most of the signatures are directly on the pages of the album, a few inscriptions are tipped or laid in.Interspersed with a few autographs of the young teenage Kira's school friends are the Inscriptions and Autographs of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, John Lewis, Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Fanny Lou Hamer, Charles Billups, and James Bevel (Director of Direct Action and Director of Nonviolent Education of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and the Director of the Selma Movement). A visceral artifact of the struggle for Civil Rights, compiled at a time when the outcome was by no means assured. It would be difficult to capture the immediacy of the Movement so completely in a single object. Bookseller Inventory # 396289

Item Description: 1965. No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. one page, typed, signed by King in blue ink, on the letterhead of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, with original mailing envelope. In very good, very clean and legible condition. Written to Dr. Vincenzo Lappiccirella, King regretfully declines an invitation for he and his wife to attend a conference on April 30 in Florence, Italy. King states that he had another engagement that day (see below). On April 30th King and SNCC¿s John Lewis announced that the two organizations, (SNCC and SCLC), would work cooperatively to implement programs designed to carry out a program of voter education and political organization across the South. This coordination followed up on the March 25th Selma to Montgomery March and was intended to create support for the Voting Rights Act of 1965, part of a consistent coordinated effort during the spring and summer of 1965 to push for passage of this crucial act. On June 15, 1965, King addressed the opening orientation session for student volunteers in Atlanta¿s Summer Community Organization and Political Education (SCOPE) Project of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). King told the assembled volunteers: ¿This generation of students is found where history is being made.¿ SCOPE took place during the summer of 1965, growing out of SCLC¿s participation in the Voter Education Project, the momentum following the Selma to Montgomery March, and SCLC¿s desire to highlight the voter registration process for blacks while the Voting Rights Act was pending before Congress. SCOPE was also inspired by the 1964 Freedom Summer, a Council of Federated Organizations initiative that mobilized hundreds of white college students to work in the South against segregation and black disenfranchisement. Despite promises that the Voting Rights Act would be enacted by June 1965, SCOPE began that summer as the bill wended its way through Congress. Its three objectives were local recruitment and community grass-roots organization, voter registration, and political education. Over 1200 SCOPE workers, including 650 college students from across the nation, 150 SCLC staff members, and 400 local volunteers, served in 6 southern states to register African Americans to vote. The Voting Rights Act was sent to Congress by President Johnson on March 17, 1965. The bill passed the Senate on May 26, 1965 (after a successful cloture vote on March 23), by a vote of seventy-seven to nineteen. The House was slower to give its approval. After five weeks of debate, it was finally passed on July 9th. After differences between the two bills were resolved in conference, the House passed the Conference Report on August 3, the Senate on August 4th. On August 6, 1965, President Johnson signed the Act into law with Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, and other civil rights leaders in attendance. SCOPE ended three weeks after the Act became law, King declared that the project¿s goals had been achieved and projected success in SCLC¿s future registration programs. Vincenzo Lappiccirella (Milan, May 28, 1907 ¿ Rome, December 27, 1966) was a political and partisan Italian, member of the Resistance during World War II. After the war he became a professor of literature and continued a lifelong pursuit of social justice. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 029006

Item Description: Harper and Brothers, New York, 1958. Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. First Edition. Early but not first printing of Martin Luther King's first book. Illustrated with B&W photographs.Copyright page with "K-L" indicating publication date of October-November 1958, three months after the first edition. Boldly SIGNED by the author on the front free endpaper. First-issue dust jacket with "No. 8471A" on front and rear flaps. Dust jacket with price of $2.95 intact and complete. There is a 1/2" closed tear toward the upper right corner of the front of the dust jacket and a bit of chipping to the head and foot of the spine. Blue cloth boards. Tips of boards are very slightly bent with tiny bit of loss at the tip ends. All in all this is a very attractive copy of this high spot in the American Civil Rights Movement signed by its most famous leader. Subtitled "The Montgomery Story," Stride Toward Freedom is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dramatic and inspiring account of Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus strike that led to the first successful large-scale application of non-violent resistance to segregation in the United States. This was Dr. King's first book, published when he was only 29 years old, three years after he led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott. The book documents significant events of the burgeoning Civil Rights movement and is illustrated with a dozen black and white photographs, including one of Dr. King wearing a prison booking number around his neck, and an iconic photograph of Rosa Parks being fingerprinted. Runs 230pp. Bound in blue cloth boards and black cloth spine with silver lettering. According to Martin Luther King, Stride Toward Freedom, his memoir of the Montgomery bus boycott, is ''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'' (King, 9). In early 1957 numerous publishers began encouraging King to write a book about the boycott. By October of that year, he signed a contract with Harper & Brothers that was negotiated by his new literary agents, Joan Daves and Marie Rodell, and began work on the manuscript. In Stride Toward Freedom, King delineates racial conditions in Montgomery before, during, and after the bus boycott. He discusses the origin and significance of the boycott, the roles that residents, civic leaders, and community organizations played in organizing and sustaining the movement, and the reactions of white Montgomery officials and residents. According to King, before the boycott African Americans in Montgomery were victims of segregation and poverty, but after the boycott, when bus desegregation was achieved, they evidenced a new level of self-respect (King, 28; 187). King points out that most African Americans in Montgomery accepted a nonviolent approach because they trusted their leaders when they told them that nonviolence was the essence of active Christianity.

Ohln. mit OU (mit einem kleinem Enriss, sonst sehr gut). Insgesamt ein gut erhaltenes Exemplar. Besitztvermerk auf dem vorderen Vorsatzblatt. Im unteren Teil des Vorstablattes befindet sich die Unterschrift des Verfassers ohne Widmung. Diese Unterschrift scheint mit der authentischen Unterschrift übereinzustimmen. Es gibt offentichtlich ähnliche, aber seltene Angebote auf dem Markt, und man vermutet, dass es sich vielleicht dabei um Unterschriften des Sekretärs handelt. Darüber lässt sich nicht definitiv entscheiden. Aufgrund der Provenienz des hier angebotenen Exemplars wurde dieses Buch in den USA angeschafft. Signatur des Verfassers. Buch.
