This section provides a narrative of the important influence of Montgomery's civil rights movement on King's career and civil rights leadership. It observes that a closer examination of the Montgomery movement reveals how a young English professor at Alabama State University (Jo Ann Robinson) and a middle-aged Pullman porter (E. D. Nixon) played a larger role in King's civil rights leadership than a white theologian such as Reinhold Niebuhr or a global leader like Mahatma Gandhi. This book demonstrates how Montgomery and her people provided the true birthplace of Martin Luther King's civil rights leadership.
