Description


First published in 1995, this best-selling autobiography by acclaimed civil rights attorney Fred D. Gray appears now in a newly revised edition that updates Gray's remarkable career (at age 82, he is still practicing law) of "destroying everything segregated that I could find." Of particular interest to historians and civil rights scholars will be the details Gray reveals for the first time about Rosa Parks's 1955 arrest. Gray speaks with authority because he was the young lawyer who represented not only Parks but also Martin Luther King Jr. and the Montgomery Improvement Association that organized to run the 382-day bus boycott. Gray is the last survivor of that inner circle and, now that Mrs. Parks is dead, he speaks candidly here. His autobiography has been updated, reedited, re-indexed, and includes new photographs.
