520    Overview:  Dr. King's best-selling account of the civil 
       rights movement in Birmingham during the spring and summer
       of 1963.  Often applauded as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s
       most incisive and eloquent book, Why We Can't Wait 
       recounts the Birmingham campaign in vivid detail, while 
       underscoring why 1963 was such a crucial year for the 
       civil rights movement. During this time, Birmingham, 
       Alabama, was perhaps the most racially segregated city in 
       the United States, but the campaign launched by Fred 
       Shuttlesworth, King, and others demonstrated to the world 
       the power of nonviolent direct action.  King examines the 
       history of the civil rights struggle and the tasks that 
       future generations must accomplish to bring about full 
       equality.  The book also includes the extraordinary 
       "Letter from Birmingham Jail," which King wrote in April 
       of 1963.
