Overview

Profiling 24 of the adult children of the most recognizable figures in the civil rights movement, this book collects the intimate, moving stories of families who were pulled apart by the horrors of the struggle or brought together by their efforts to change America. The whole range of players is covered, from the children of leading figures like Martin Luther King Jr. and martyrs like James Earl Chaney to segregationists like George Wallace and Black Panther leaders like Elaine Brown. The essays reveal that some children are more pessimistic than their parents, whose idealism they saw destroyed by the struggle, while others are still trying to change the world. Included are such inspiring stories as the daughter of a notoriously racist Southern governor who finds her calling as a teacher in an all-black inner-city school and the daughter of a famous martyr who unexpectedly meets her mother’s killer. From the first activists killed by racist Southerners to the current global justice protestors carrying on the work of their parents, these profiles offer a look behind the public face of the triumphant civil rights movement and show the individual lives it changed in surprising ways.

    An Important Contribution

    As one of the young foot soldiers of the civil rights movement who went on to become a professional historian, I was fascinated to get a copy of this book, in part to see what had become of some of my old friends and their families. What I found was just riveting. This was the year in which my state, Florida, seemed to be hit by a hurricane practically every week in the fall, and twice I had to evacuate. This was the book I took with me, and I'm glad I did. I don't think any bookshelf on the civil rights movement will be complete without it. And I'm anxious to see what the author's next book will be.

    A New Chapter Pertaining to the Civil Rights Movement Has Been Written

    I was introduced to this by an annoucement in our local newspaper regarding a book signing event. From this alone, I was intriqued and knew that I had no choice but to purchase and read it. Understand that I have a passion when it comes to African-American history during what was known as the modern civil rights era. As a result, I consider myself to be a fairly learned scholar, when it comes to the subject area(no I did not major in history). However, 'Children of the Movement' takes a very unique approach. This book is written from the perspective of the children of some of the well-knowned(and not so well-knowned and seemingly forgotten) participants of the civil rights struggle. It is fascinating to read about and realize how these offsprings' lives were affected by various incidents and circumstances surrounding their parents. And although some of the information can be considered positive, there are some that reflect what may be deemed as a negative side(now this doesn't necessarily take away from the contributions made by these persons, but it does show their potential 'weakness(es)'-and we all have them). Furthermore, this book doesn't just include persons of African-American descent, but other backgrounds as well. So you have a wide range of thoughts and personalities. 'Children of the Movement' is a must for your history collection. In reality, it could be used as a supplement for many history seminars, forums, and classes. I proudly commend Mr. John Blake for his creativity, talent, and interest to pursue this avenue. He has written this book in such a way, that the reader's interest is maintained from beginning to end(even if you are not a history buff)! I was enlightened to information, that I never knew. But all I can say is, read it for yourself and you will comprehend what I am saying. And you will be glad that you did!
