New in Civil Rights History
Derrick Z. Jackson,"A King We Hardly Knew," Boston Globe, 22 November; and Jackson,"The Continuing ‘Danger' of King," Boston Globe, 25 November, is a two-part series in anticipation of the publication of Volume VI of The Papers of Martin Luther King. A preliminary draft of this new volume sits three feet away on my bookshelves. The final version should appear in the Spring. This volume is of special interest because it includes material – many sermons and speeches, some letters -- that Coretta Scott King long delayed making available to the King Project. It is a large part of what was recently purchased for $32 million by an Atlanta trust. Because many of the documents are from years already covered in volumes I-V of the King Papers, Volume VI breaks the chronological sequencing of those first five volumes. Until now, much of the material in this volume has never been closely read by King scholars.
