The Color of Law

King and other civil-rights leaders enter Montgomery, on a 1965 march. This picture links to a New Yorker article on the development of the Voting Rights Act, with tons of detail on the broader Civil Rights movement. Truly the most comprehensive article I've ever read on the subject. MUST read.


James Luther Bevel (October 19, 1936 – December 19, 2008) was a leader of the 1960s Civil Rights Movement who, as the Director of Direct Action and Director of Nonviolent Education of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) initiated, strategized, directed, and developed SCLC's three major successes of the era:[1][2] the 1963 Birmingham Children's Crusade, the 1965 Selma Voting Rights Movement, and the 1966 Chicago Open Housing Movement.[3]
