Description
The repressive climate of racial hatred in America that spawned the 1960s civil rights movement also galvanized a generation of bold, persuasive, driven leaders who embodied the qualities of servant leadership. In a time of conflict, turmoil, and tragedy. these passionate and committed African Americans emerged to lead a generation from the cruelties of segregation to the revolution of civil rights reform. Beginning with the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case, which forced the integration of public schools in the South, Servants of the People follows the lives of six such leaders as they willingly risk their lives for the civil rights cause: A. Philip Randolph, Frederick D. Patterson, Thurgood Marshall, Whitney M. Young, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., and Fannie Lou Hamer. In these fascinating profiles of six individuals who devoted their lives to service, Williams reveals the rich legacy of servant leadership they embodied and paints a powerful portrait of an entire generation and those who came forth to lead them, recapturing their legacy and drawing valuable lessons for today's leaders.
