The Sword & The Shield: The Struggle for Black Freedom

It is easy to be bleak about the human race, but there are people who have proved to me that we can be better than we are.

The Sword & The Shield: The Struggle for Black Freedom

“To most Americans, Malcolm X and Dr. King represent contrasting ideals: self-defense vs. nonviolence, black power vs. civil rights, the sword vs. the shield. The struggle for black freedom is wrought with the same contrasts. In his latest book, Peniel Joseph upends longstanding preconceptions to transform our understanding of the 20th century’s most iconic African American leaders, and addresses the complex and nuanced relationship between power and love in perhaps the defining American social justice movement of our times.
