Fred Shuttleworth: Unsung Heroics in the Civil Rights Movement in Birmingham
Andrew M. Manis
In, A Fire You Can't Put Out, Manis opens a window to the Birmingham Civil Rights story, revealing Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth as a dynamic individual living in this complex time. Manis takes seriously Shuttlesworth's insistence that religious commitment and the demand for rights were innately connected and understands the relationship between faith and activism. The Shuttlesworth biography makes an important contribution to the discussion of American religious history, African American religious history, and the history of the Civil Rights Movements.
