It's in the Action: Memories of a Nonviolent Warrior

This book is about Cordy Tindell Vivian
"It's in the Action: Memories of a Nonviolent Warrior" is a profound memoir that encapsulates the soul-stirring journey of C.T. Vivian, a pivotal figure in the civil rights movement. Published on March 16, 2021, this book traverses through the decades of Vivian's dedication to nonviolent activism, from the turbulent 1960s when he fought alongside icons like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., to his receipt of the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2013 by Barack Obama. Born in 1924 and having faced relentless discrimination and violence, Vivian's narrative is not just historical recounting but a beacon of resilience and moral fortitude. His strategic roles in key campaigns like those in Birmingham, St. Augustine, and Selma illuminate the struggles and triumphs over racial injustice and voting rights. This memoir, enriched with a foreword by Andrew Young, is not only crucial for understanding past civil rights battles but also serves as an inspirational guide for new generations combating contemporary injustices. Recommended for high school readers, "It's in the Action" is an essential exploration of the principles and strategies of the civil rights movement, urging readers to reflect on how they too can embody the change they wish to see in the world.
