Movements for Social Change


Across That Bridge.  Life Lessons and a Vision for Change.
By John Lewis, United States Congressman


Blessed Unrest: How the Largest Movement in the World Came into Being, and Why No One Saw it Coming, by Paul Hawken


Trumpet of Conscience
by Martin Luther King Jr. Available from the Ottawa Public Library.
Five lectures delivered in 1967 for the CBC Massey Lectures.  This is a slim volume and a fast read, but if you don’t want to read the whole thing, read IV: Nonviolence and Social Change.


The Long Haul: An Autobiography
By Myles Horton, with Judith Kohl and Herbert Kohl



See the civil rights movement for sources specific to that particular movement.
