The Struggle Is Eternal: Gloria Richardson and Black Liberation

Joseph R. Fitzgerald
University Press of Kentucky
360 pages

Many prominent and well-known figures greatly impacted the civil rights movement, but one of the most influential leaders of that period was Gloria Richardson, leader of the Cambridge Nonviolent Action Committee. Her strategies - including her belief in black people's right to self-defense - were adopted, often without credit, by a number of civil rights and black power leaders who carried the struggle on throughout the late 1960s.

The Struggle Is Eternal explores the largely forgotten but deeply significant life of this central figureand her determination to improve the lives of black people.
