Summary
In this first full-length biography of Birmingham civil rights leader Fred Shuttlesworth, Manis (liberal arts, Mercer University) emphasizes Shuttlesworth's multifaceted attacks on segregation, particularly during the 1950s and 1960s. Manis also argues that although Shuttlesworth worked for civil rights in numerous ways, his ministry as pastor was the driving force behind his fiery desire for equality. Annotation c.
