What We’re Reading: The Sword and The Shield

We are excited to announce The Swords and the Shield as our first selection in our What We’re Reading series. We hope that this series will inspire you to pick up a copy of each book and to share with us your thoughts as you read along with us.

The Sword and the Shield, written by Peniel E. Joseph takes a nuanced approach in its delivery, offering a double biography of leaders and activists Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Although these men have often be considered to be on opposing sides of what we call the civil rights movement: non-violence vs by any means necessary, Peniel Joseph makes the case that they are actually two sides of the same coin.

Watch the video below where Peniel Joseph discusses The Sword and the Shield with history educators and the National Council for History Education
