TAYLOR BRANCH is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the acclaimed America in the King Years trilogy, which includes the books Parting the Waters, Pillar of Fire, and At Canaan's Edge. For his latest book, The King Years: Historic Moments in the Civil Rights Movement, Branch has identified 18 essential moments from the Civil Rights movement, and providing selections from his trilogy, has placed each moment in historical context.
