Summary expansion
This work charts the civil rights movement from the NACCP philosophy and middle-class aspirations of the author's parents' generation, to the non-violent direct-action approach of Martin Luther King, through the Kennedy and Johnson administrations and the relationship between King and both men, who struggled between their desire to do right and their passion to win the South. Andrew Young discusses the extent of FBI harassment of King and others and the violence of their reaction to King's anti-Vietnam War stance. He portrays the aftermath of King's death and his own decision to try to effect change from the inside, by entering the new frontier of politics.;Andrew Young has been at the centre of the civil rights movement since its infancy, and was a right-hand-man to Martin Luther King
