The Three Mothers: How Mothers of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin Shaped a Nation
Much has been written about the sons of Berdis Baldwin, Alberta King, & Louise Little. But virtually nothing has been said about the extraordinary women who raised them, all born within six years of each other and who all contended with the very specific prejudices faced by Black women during Jim Crow. Berdis, Alberta, and Louise all possessed an unrelenting belief in education and these women used their strength and motherhood to push their sons toward greatness with a conviction that all human beings deserve dignity and respect despite the rampant racism of the 20th century. These three mothers taught resistance and a fundamental belief in the worth of black Americans, even when these beliefs flew in the face of America’s racist practices and led to ramifications for their safety.(This book may contain a sharpie mark on the top or bottom edge and may show mild signs of shelfwear.)
