This collection provides a text that examines the views and parameters of peace activism by both famous and little-known African-American leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Paul Robeson, E. Franklin Frazier, Gloria Richardson, Septima P. Clark, and Ella Baker. These documents, most of which are reprinted in full, outline the wide range of approaches, ideas, and philosophies various Black Americans used to generate an antiwar campaign, question the use of violence around the world, and call attention to the emergence of international racism and social intolerance during the late 19th through the 20th centuries.
