Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, first book, Stride Toward Freedom, is a first-hand account of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Just months after the boycott's end [December 20, 1956], King was being asked to write a book chronicling the year long struggle against Alabama's bus segregation laws, which ended with a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court finding said laws unconstitutional. In the book he discusses the racial tension in Alabama before and after the boycott and his personal beliefs in nonviolent resistance. "Stride" was published on September 17, 1958, to critical acclaim.
