The Rise: 1967

Special Price $24.00 Regular Price $32.00
The year 1967 was pivotal to the civil rights movement. In April, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a speech to thousands inside a New York church condemning the Vietnam War and asking for a peaceful end. In June, the Supreme Court case Loving v. Virginia would determine whether interracial couples could legally marry in the United States. The five-day long Detroit Riot against the Black community in July would end up being one of the most violent in our country’s history. And in October, Thurgood Marshall would become the first African American justice appointed to the Supreme Court, securing his place as one of the most influential figures in the fight for civil rights. This detailed account explains why 1967 was such a critical year in the civil rights movement. AVAILABLE: APRIL 2023
