Item Description...
Birmingham's Sixteenth Street Baptist Church had a preeminent role in the story of the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama, in part because of the bombing there that took the lives of four young girls. However, other African American churches in Birmingham played a much larger role in the Civil Rights Movement. In particular, the Bethel Baptist Church, pastored from 1953 to 1961 by Fred Shuttlesworth, was the mother church of agitation against segregation in the city known as "Bombingham."

In 1998 the Birmingham Historical Society sponsored the Birmingham Revolutionaries Symposium to present a case for the national significance of Fred Shuttlesworth, his Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights, and the sixty African American churches in which they met. Bringing together both historical and sociological analysis by scholars and personal reflections of participants, this volume includes six essays from the Symposium and makes a compelling case for recognizing Bethel Baptist Church, in addition to the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, as a National Historic Landmark and for placing the other fifty-nine civil rights churches on the National Register of Historic Places.

These essays call attention to some of the Civil Rights Movement's most unsung heroes. Anyone interested in the history of race relations or in the Civil Rights Movement will find these essays rewarding reading.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Book rubbed me the wrong way on Rev. Shuttlesworth  Sep 3, 2004
I purchased and read this book for a Civil Rights class that I took which focused on the Civil Rights movement in Alabama. Fortunately I was exposed to the movement's highlights in many forms of literature and multimedia, thus not seeing only one view of events. This particular book was my first introduction to the Rev. Shuttlesworth, and I was vastly disappointed in the way the book portrayed the Reverend. I think the authors over compensate for the lack of attention given to Shuttlesworth in mainstream Civil Rights pieces, trying too hard to compare his actions with other leaders. I was put off by the descriptions, which seemed to try to discredit the other leaders.

Thankfully, later in the class I was reintroduced to Shuttlesworth and I took away a much more positive view of him and his contributions to the movement.

I would recommend reading Parting the Waters and Pillar of Fire by Taylor Branch instead of this particular selection.
