Civil Rights: A Current Guide to the People, Organizations, and Events.
Adams, A. John; Burke, Joan Martin
This book was originally prepared as quick reference for the correspondents, producers, and editors of CBS News. In a time of reportedly frequently confusing civil rights activity, it is considered virtually impossible for individuals to keep track of important events and personalities. This book is intended to be a practical aid in refreshing memories on principal persons, dates, and events of the past 15 years in the civil rights struggle. The criterion for selection of entries has been information that the so-called well-informed newsman--and citizen--needs to know. Opinions have been included only where they seem helpful to understanding. Except where otherwise indicated, most persons in the alphabetical section are black. As a guide to the performance of white politicians the voting record of all Congressmen on the landmark civil rights bills of the sixties is included as an appendix. (Author/JW)
