Short Synopsis
The classic story of nonviolent resistance in America—the Montgomery bus boycott—written by Martin Luther King, Jr.

Full Synopsis
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s account of the first successful large-scale application of nonviolent resistance in America is comprehensive, revelatory, and intimate. King described his book as "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." Stride Toward Freedom traces the phenomenal journey of a community and shows how the twenty-six-year-old King, with his conviction for equality and nonviolence, helped transform the nation and the world.

"Martin Luther King's early words return to us today with enormous power, as profoundly true, as wise and inspiring, now as when he wrote them fifty years ago." ---Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States

"Jackson does the book full justice, narrating with assurance, style, and confidence." ---AudioFile
