The American civil rights movement didn’t truly come into the spotlight until the mid-1900s, but the movement was the product of decades — centuries, really — of strife and inequality brought on by slavery, racism, and hate. As the great Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
This Civil Rights Newspaper Book pulls together a plethora of tabloid-sized newspaper reprints representing articles and headlines actually published in the 1950s and 1960s, when the leaders of the civil rights movement were most active and visible. See how The Washington Post shared the news that Malcolm X was assassinated at a New York rally. Witness history unfurl in stark, unavoidable black and white, as you read the words of star reporters using the terminology favored by the day — while it may not always be flattering, it’s always real, and that will appeal to gift recipients who appreciate learning from history how it actually was so we can together design a better future.
This is a wonderful present for history enthusiasts who have read all the biographies and need something truer to the time. Surprise modern-day activists with a book that transports them to a crucial time in the American past and they may be surprised to see how relevant those moments (and the people who lived them) still are. For an extra-special touch, personalize the book to create a custom gift that will stand the test of time.
