About the Author

Derryn E. Moten is a professor of history and chair of the history and political science department at Alabama State University, formerly, Alabama State College, and formerly, the department of history that Dr. L. D. Reddick chaired from 1995 until 1960. Moten received his doctorate at the University of Iowa in American Studies. His 1997 Iowa dissertation "A Gruesome Warning to Black Girls: The August 16, 1912 execution of Virginia Christian” provides the inspiration for Forsaken, a novel by Ross Howell, Jr. Prior to his studies in Iowa City, Moten earned a graduate degree in Library Science from Catholic University of America and worked as a law librarian for a boutique tax firm in Washington, DC. He is a local co-president for the American Federation of Teachers and is vice chair of the AFT Higher Education Policy and Planning Council. He is also a vice president for the Alabama AFL-CIO. He lives in Montgomery, Alabama.

The writing of Crusader Without Violence started with Dr. L.D. Reddick's arrival in Montgomery to take over the chairmanship of the Department of History at Alabama State University (then College) at about the time the historic bus boycott began. It ended when the author left with Dr. King on a visit to India, from which they both returned just before the book was published. Lawrence Dunbar Reddick taught history in Kentucky, New York City, Atlanta and Montgomery, Alabama. He received his Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago. For nine years he was curator of the unique Schomburg Collection of Negro Literature of the New York Public Library. His numerous articles appeared in Saturday Review, The Nation, and professional journals. He is also the author of Our Cause Speeds On
