(YorkPedia Editorial):- Los Angeles, California Jul 29, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – The early fight for civil rights for black people in America is filled with excitement, danger, courage, Jim Crow laws, lynching, and court battles, and has no shortage of learning lessons that still empower today. Author, NAACP activist and criminologist Elvis Slaughter understands this deeply. Following up well-received work in the fiction and nonfiction world alike, Slaughter has turned his attention to a figure who helped set the stage for early civil rights activism in his new release. “Moorfield,” Slaughter’s new book, is a remarkable look at the life of Moorfield Storey. Storey, a white lawyer, who, in his role as the NAACP’s first president, set the stage for a tradition of modern activism for civil rights that continues to be vibrant today.
“This is an important piece of history that should not be forgotten,” commented the enthusiastic author. “Moorfield should not be forgotten. His role in the NAACP was a courageous one. I believe many who are not familiar with it, and even those who are, will find it difficult to put my new book down. Moorfield died the same year Martin Luther King was born, which can give a good perspective on how he was a true visionary who took great risks for civil rights early.”
The new release from Slaughter is certainly a timely one for the United States. So many issues of equality and social justice are still being worked on and need to be positively resolved. And with the story of Moorfield Storey, a powerful example is delivered showing how people from all communities can have a role to play in making America a better place to live.
“Moorfield” is available in hardback format (ISBN: 978-1-7360506-3-7, $25.99). The book is available at Amazon.com,www.moorfieldstorey.com, and everywhere books are sold.
