Hello there. I'm currently writing my History NEA and am really struggling with how to structure it and especially with finding historical interpretations. Any help would be greatly appreciated - thank you!
The question is:
"To what extent was Martin Luther King the most successful Civil Rights activist in terms of bettering the lives of Black Americans between 1861-1968?"

Hi! Here are a few:

Clayborne Carson - Charismatic leadership in a mass struggle
https://kinginstitute.stanford.edu/s...s_struggle.pdf
(Arguing that MLK had important contributions, but the movement could have been successful without him)

August Meier - On the role of MLK
-Book
(Focusing on organizations, other civil rights figures, his appeal to white America and how violence was important in furthering civil rights)

Barbara Ransby - Ella Baker and the black freedom movement
https://edisciplinas.usp.br/pluginfi...om_Movemen.pdf
(Focusing on Ella Baker and what she did for the movement as well as King's role)
