About this title


The highly regarded statesman and former mayor of Atlanta provides a thoughtful, insider's perspective on the Civil Rights Movement and plots a course for America's future. 150,000 first printing. $135,000 ad/promo. Tour.


This eyewitness account of the civil rights movement from Andrew Young, an early adviser and colleague of Martin Luther King Jr. who went on to become the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, among other things, carries the force of the best history as well as the passion of someone directly involved. Like many other civil rights leaders, Young began his career as a minister; that he rose to become respected leader and statesman is in itself testimony to the progress America has made in race relations. The book includes clear-eyed portraits of King and other prominent figures such as Ralph Abernathy.
