"Is this a reference book or should it be in the biography section? Because this book has so much to offer in tracing the Civil Rights movement, it could be considered a reference….This Africa-American activist and leader fights for change and economic justice, as well as furthering political goals through his Rainbow Coalition….If you can't decide whether it belongs in reference or biographies, get one for both."
