King and the Other America

University of California Press

The first chapter defines the race and class framework as debated by Black America very early on, as it foreshadowed the tensions between activists engaged in the 1968 campaign. It is dedicated to exploring the analysis of Frederick Douglass and W.E.B. Du Bois, pioneers of a black radical egalitarianism much more relevant to King’s democratic socialism than usually assumed by historians. Their thoughts on will serve as a stepping stone for understanding King’s intellectual inheritance
