Visiting Martin Luther King Jr. during the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott, journalist William Worthy almost sat on a loaded pistol. "Just for self-defense," King assured him. It was not the only weapon King kept for such a purpose; one of his advisors remembered the reverend’s Montgomery, Alabama, home as "an arsenal." Like King, many ostensibly "nonviolent" civil rights activists embraced their constitutional right to self-protection—yet this crucial dimension of the Afro-American freedom struggle has been long ignored by history. . . In This Nonviolent Stuff’ll Get You Killed, Charles E. Cobb Jr. recovers this history, describing the vital role that armed self-defense has played in the survival and liberation of black communities. Drawing on his experiences in the civil rights movement and giving voice to its participants, Cobb lays bare the paradoxical relationship between the nonviolent civil rights struggle and the long history and importance of African Americans taking up arms to defend themselves against white supremacist violence. . . . #mahoganybooks #blackbooksmatter

Don't be weighed down by a "ball of confusion" as emotions during a time when racism being filmed is at an all time high 🤔. A well rounded library could be just what's needed instead of these screens that keep poking at the trauma. We at thee #HomeOfBlackBooks agree with this reader, that these 📚 are a well rounded foundation. Especially for the f***ery called America 2020. Visit www.HakimsBookstore.com to start or add to your collection. #LeadersAreReaders #booksworthreading #ShiftTheCulture #PreserveTheEssence #accountabilty #AllPowerToThePeople #justiceforgeorgefloyd #BlackHistoryEveryday #Ourstory #knowledgeofself #selfeducation #selfdetermination #selfmastery #alonetogether
