We Changed the World

African Americans 1945-1970

Vincent Harding

The Young Oxford History of African Americans

We Changed the World examines the roots of the civil rights movement, from the events preceding Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott, through the influence of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X, to the rise of SNCC and the Black Panthers. Count Basie, Billie Holiday, Thurgood Marshall, and Angela Davis are just a few of the famous African Americans profiled who composed, sang, thought, and fought to change the world.
