By Martin Luther King, Jr. This is no time for romantic illusions and empty philosophical debates about freedom. This is a time for action. What is needed is a strategy for change, a tactical program that will bring the Negro into the mainstream of American life as quickly as possible.

Graduation is a rite of passage that takes us either to the next step in education or our first step in a career.

That got us thinking about what guidance our authors can give for those moving on to the next chapter of their lives.

Malcolm X replied that he was eager to meet Martin Luther King, Jr.—as soon as the next afternoon. If they had met that day and worked together, the radical King would be well known.
