American history saw a dramatic change with the enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Now this landmark era is brought to life in a compelling new reference work that provides a complete background of the civil rights movement, with detailed entries on Martin Luther King, Andrew Young, the March on Washington, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and dozens of other notable figures and events from this tumultuous time. Culled directly from the original Africana (about which The New York Times noted, ?a very useful tool, and may even set new standards and change attitudes about the African American experience”), this compelling reference work is a unique testament to the remarkable legacy of the civil rights movement.
