 A Quaker Behind the Dream

For Charles Walker, the biggest injustice of the 1950s and 1960s was discriminatory treatment of African Americans. Rather than turning a blind eye to the evils of segregation, Walker passionately supported Dr. Martin Luther King’s nonviolent cause, and became a key trainer and writer of training materials for the Civil Rights Movement. He taught nonviolence as a valid method of protest and developed a working relationship with Dr. King and other prominent activists.

Walker wrote the first training handbook for the Movement, served as an organizer for the March on Washington, and was staff trainer for the 1964 Freedom Summer. This book provides a unique inside view of the training and support that took place behind the headlines.
