The first volume of the Library of America RCR tracks the rising energy of the Civil Rights Movement; volume 2 chronicles the decline into the chaos of the late 60s. It's a depressing read, but there's nothing that can be done about that; it's simply what happened. I would have liked just a bit more indication that the critiques of the chauvinism of the Black Power Movement were beginning as the story unfolded; see Toni Cade's anthology The Black Woman for the supplement. But most of the problem [...]

The second part of the Library of America's two volume anthology of journalism on the Civil Rights movement is as excellent as the first part.

This book is the second volume of the Library of America's documentary, journalistic history of the Civil Rights Movement. The first volume covers the years 1941-1963 and takes the story up to the March on Washington in August, 1963. The second volume covers a shorter time span, 1963 - 1973, but an equally momentous series of events. Volume II is easily important enough for its own short notice and review here.The centerpiece of the two volumes is the March on Washington which celebrates its 40t [...]
