Notes

First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to Ted Sorensen and his wife Gillian on the half-title: "For Ted & Gillian: With appreciation for your support of the cause and gratitude for your personal friendship. Sincerely Whitney". Ted Sorensen (1928-2010) had a significant behind-the-scenes influence on American politics in the 1960s. He served as speechwriter for John F. Kennedy and was one of his closest advisers. Following Kennedy's assassination, he briefly worked for Lyndon Johnson, and served as a major advisor to Robert Kennedy in his presidential campaign. He also ran for the Senate for New York in 1970, was unsuccessfully nominated by Jimmy Carter as director of the CIA in 1977, and managed Gary Hart's presidential campaign in 1984. Whitney Young (1921-1971) was a major figure in the civil rights movement. In the present book, Young outlines his programme for how racism in America can be overcome.
