Martin Luther King’s 1965 address from Montgomery, Alabama, the center of much racial conflict at the time and the location of the well-publicized bus boycott a decade earlier, is often considered by historians to be the culmination of the civil rights era in American history. In his momentous speech, King declared that segregation was “on its deathbed” and that the movement had already achieved significant milestones. Although the civil rights movement had won many battles in the struggle for racial equality by the mid-1960s, including legislation to guarantee black voting rights and to desegregate public accommodations, the fight to implement the new laws was just starting. In reality, King’s speech in Montgomery represented a new beginning rather than a conclusion to the movement, a fact that King acknowledged in the address. After the Dream: Black and White Southerners since 1965 begins where many histories of the civil rights movement end, with King’s triumphant march from the iconic battleground of Selma to Montgomery. Timothy J. Minchin and John Salmond focus on events in the South following the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. After the Dream examines the social, economic, and political implications of these laws in the decades following their passage, discussing the empowerment of black southerners, white resistance, accommodation and acceptance, and the nation’s political will. The book also provides a fascinating history of the often-overlooked period of race relations during the presidential administrations of Ford, Carter, Reagan, and both George H. W. and George W. Bush. Ending with the election of President Barack Obama, this study will influence contemporary historiography on the civil rights movement.

A riveting and powerful account of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was killed in Memphis, Tennessee, by a single assassin’s bullet. A career criminal named James Earl Ray was seen fleeing from a rooming house that overlooked the hotel balcony from where King was cut down. An international manhunt ended two months later with Ray’s capture. Though Ray initially pled guilty, he quickly recanted and for the rest of his life insisted he was an unwitting pawn in a grand conspiracy. In Killing the Dream, expert investigative reporter Gerald Posner reexamines Ray and the evidence, even tracking down the mystery man Ray claimed was the conspiracy’s mastermind. Beginning with an authoritative biography of Ray’s life, and continuing with a gripping account of the assassination and its aftermath, Posner cuts through phony witnesses, false claims, and a web of misinformation surrounding that tragic spring day in 1968. He puts Ray’s conspiracy theory to rest and ultimately manages to disclose what really happened the day King was murdered.

A business parable about how companies can achieve remarkable results by helping their employees fulfill their dreams Managing people is difficult. With disengagement and turnover on the rise, many managers are scratching their heads wondering what to do. It's not that we dont dream of being great managers, it's just that we havent found a practical and efficient way to do it. Until now . . . The fictional company in this remarkable book is grappling with real problems of high turnover and low morale -- so the managers begin to investigate what really drives the employees. What they discover is that the key to motivation isnt necessarily the promise of a bigger paycheck or title, but rather the fulfillment of crucial personal dreams. They also learned that people at every level need to be offered specific kinds of help and encouragement -- or our dreams will forever remain just dreams as we grow dissatisfied with our lives and jobs. Beginning with his important thought that a company can only become the-best-version-of-itself to the extent that its employees are becoming better-versions-of-themselves, Matthew Kelly explores the connection between the dreams we are chasing personally and the way we all engage at work. Tackling head-on the growing problem of employee disengagement, Kelly explores the dynamic collaboration that is unleashed when people work together to achieve company objectives and personal dreams. The power of The Dream Manager is that simply becoming aware of the concept will change the way you manage and relate to people instantly and forever. What's your dream?

The pursuit of happiness! We have different perceptions of what that means among ourselves, and within ourselves as we experience myriad events (joyous or otherwise) such as - activities, relationships, activities, learning, challenges, contentions, problems. Whether we automatically think of it or not, each of those events contributes (positively or negatively) to our mental, physical, psychological and spiritual development; for being happy is good, but being happy as we develop is satisfyingly sublime. This book, The Dream Channel is designed to itemize and explain various aspects of the twenty-four Tools of Living we all have in common, yet that we, as individuals, are constantly treating subjectively in agreement with our differing (sometimes unstable) needs, desires, emotions, and values. The Supreme Being has loaned us these tools, and, through His gift of dreams, urges us to utilize these taken-for granted tools so as to allow us the mental, physical, psychological, and spiritual development of sublime happiness. Here are 12 of the 24 primary tools, including examples of the associated auxiliary tools s that are utilized in dreams: Resources book, vehicle, money Space interior and exterior Senses sound, taste, touch, smell Illumination light, darkness, color Order clean, repair, tailor, reproduce Motion walk, ride, drive, fly, fall Vegetation soil, dust, lawn Climate heat, cold, thunder Communication thought, speech, gestures Intimacy sexual activity, pregnancy, marriage Anatomy people, hand, face, infant, health Garment wearing apparel, nakedness Yes, these tools (over 160) are used in dreams; dramas meant for one individual only private and personal dramas.
