‘Crusader Without Violence’

Lurleen B. Wallace Community College (LBWCC) in Greenville will have Dr. Derryn Motens as a presenter discussing a biography of Martin Luther King, Jr. on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 11 a.m. at the Wendell Mitchell Conference center on the Greenville campus.

Published to critical acclaim in 1959 and long out of print, Crusader Without Violence: A Biography of Martin Luther King, Jr. was the first biography of the dynamic leader who emerged from the 1955–56 Montgomery Bus Boycott as the spokesman of the Twentieth Century American Civil Rights Movement.

NewSouth’s 60th anniversary edition, with Moten’s introduction containing new biographical details about its author, returns to general circulation a valuable, rare, and engaging account of Martin Luther King, Jr. before he became an American icon.

Join LBWCC as Dr. Moten provides an introduction that puts Reddick’s biography of King into context and explains why Crusader Without Violence remains a significant historical document.

Admission is free, and the public is encouraged to attend. For more information, please contact Peige Josey at pjosey@lbwcc.edu or call 334-881-2213.
