From the Paper:

"Martin Luther King Jr. was the leader of the Civil Rights Movement beginning with the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955. He wrote the book Why We Can't Wait in 1963 at a time when the movement was about to change and become more under his leadership. King made the methods of the Montgomery boycott, non-violent protest, into the hallmark of the movement. The bus Boycott was successful, and after that, King and other leaders turned their attention to other issues. He addresses this effort in this book, includes the full text of his "Letter from a Birmingham Jail," analyzes his own tactics and what the movement should be doing, and sets goals to be met."
