"Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "Letter from Birmingham Jail" is arguably the most important written document of the civil rights protest era and a widely read modern literary classic. Personally addressed to eight white Birmingham clergy who sought to avoid violence by publicly discouraging King's civil rights demonstrations in Birmingham, the nationally published "Letter" captured the essence of the struggle for racial equality and provided a blistering critique of the gradualist approach to racial justice. It soon became part of American folklore, and the image of King penning his epistle from a prison cell remains among the most moving of the era. Yet as S. Jonathan Bass explains in the first comprehensive history of King's "Letter," this image and the piece's literary appeal conceal a much more complex tale." "Here is the story of how King and his associates carefully planned, composed, edited, and distributed the "Letter" as a public relations tool; of the media's enthusiastic response to it; and of this single document's immense impact on the civil rights movement, the eight white clergy, and the American public. As Bass goes beyond shallow headlines and popular myths to uncover the true story behind the "Letter," Martin Luther King Jr. emerges as a pragmatist who skillfully used the mass media in his efforts to end racial injustice." "In separate biographies of each of the eight ministers, Bass Investigates the backgrounds, individual reactions to the "Letter," and subsequent careers of the men who were vilified as misguided opponents of King. Understanding their viewpoints and examining their lives reveal much about the role of the church and the synagogue during the civil rights era. Although they agreed on a few moral and ethical principles and signed joint public statements, the eight clergy had conflicting and often evolving ideas about civil rights and race relations, just like other southerners. Though chided in the "Letter," most of the eight ministers, Bass explains, shared King's goals of racial justice but disagreed with him on how best to achieve them - a position in line with mainstream religious and political leaders of the time." "In demonstrating how the racial dilemma trapped self-styled gradualists and moderates between integrationists and segregationists. Blessed Are the Peacemakers forcefully dramatizes the complexity of southern race relations in the turbulent decades of the 1950s and 1960s."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
