Description

Martin Luther King, Jr., Autograph Draft from Chapter III of His Book, Stride Toward Freedom, with Edits. Two pages, 8.5" x 11", Montgomery, n. d. [circa 1957]. Accomplished entirely in King's hand, in ink with edits in red. In the text, King is discussing the arrest of Rosa Parks and the seeds of the bus boycott. The small spots of staining in the lower portion, but not affecting the text.

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.

This is a most satisfied customer's testimonial of a true gentleman in today's era. It is rare that one encounters through the course of life a person which one has read in childhood' s classics or seen in movies of old.
