Introduction
1.
Perhaps the best studies of the civil rights revolution have come from participants and journalists. See, e.g., Debbie Lewis, And We Are Not Saved ( New York, 1970); Cleveland Sellers, River of No Return ( New York, 1975); Anne Moody, Coming of Age in Mississippi ( New York, 1968); James Forman, The Making of a Black Revolutionary ( New York, 1975); and Pat Watters and Reese Cleghorn, Climbing Jacob's Ladder: The Arrival of Negroes in Southern Politics ( New York, 1967). One of the best histories of civil rights organizations is August Meier and Elliott Rudwick, CORE: A Study in the Civil Rights Movement, 1942-1968 ( New York, 1973). Other books on the civil rights movement include Louis Lomax, The Negro Revolt ( New York, 1962); David Lewis , King: A Critical Biography ( New York, 1970); and Howard Zinn, SNCC: The New Abolitionists ( Boston, 1964), to name just a few. Carl Brauer, John F. Kennedy and the Second Reconstruction ( New York, 1977), is one of those who argues the importance of presidential initiatives. Among public- opinion surveys of racial attitudes are the following: Samuel Lubell, White and Black: Test of a Nation ( New York, 1964); and Richard Lemon, The Troubled Americans ( New York, 1970); and Angus Campbell, White Attitudes Toward Black People ( Ann Arbor, 1971).
