I chose this title to know more about the bus boycott in my hometown of Montgomery. As a child of nine at the time, about all I knew was that we starting driving our maid home after work. What I learned was far beyond a long overdue history lesson. Dr. King's explication of the characteristics of non-violent resistance was so clear and inspiring. His constant invocation of proper Christian behavior was also encouraging. With all the hatred and division in the world today, what an uplifting story of the refusal to hate bringing justice and dignity to a righteous cause.

I’ve never fully (and won’t ever) understand segregation or racism, but this account of history has given me a better understanding of this important historical event in the civil rights movement. More so, it makes me long for a renewed interest in the teachings of MLK, specifically nonviolent resistance and Christian love in action, rather than a tertiary interest in the generic cause of civil rights. MLK proved with his life that works without love is just noise.
