Radio Free Dixie by Timothy B Tyson, Robert F Williams Civil Rights, Black Power

$13.99

A gripping biography of a controversial black activist This biography tells the riveting story of Robert F. Williams (1925-1996). In the late 1950s, as president of the Monroe, North Carolina, NAACP, Williams organized armed resistance to KKK terrorists - in the process challenging not only white supremacists but also Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. As Radio Free Dixie reveals, however, the civil rights movement and the Black Power movement grew out of the same soil, confronted the same predicaments, and were much closer than traditional portrayals suggest. In the civil rights - era South, independent black politics, black culture pride, and "armed self-reliance" operated in tension and in tandem with legal efforts and nonviolent protests in the quest for African American freedom.

Published by University of North Carolina Press. 1st Ed, 1st printing. Hard cover with dust jacket. Copy in VGC, previous owner's name on front free end page, crisp and clean throughout. Handsome copy from the library of eminent civil rights historian John A Salmond.
