About this title
Stories, essays and speeches capture the mood of the late 50s and early 60s. The opening essay describes the authors arrest and brutal treatment by the Los Angeles Police (paralleling the Rodney King incident). The final chapter documents the rise of the black liberation movement. Forman's riveting tales of oppression and liberation include the struggle to help blacks register to vote and his own imprisonment for this cause in Mississippi. Two stirring speeches to the United Nations condemn discrimination, apartheid, and colonialism. With commentary describing the relevance of each chapter to contemporary events, this book is a testament to the development of Formans thought and the richness of his written work.About the Author:
