No Name in the Street by James Baldwin
Historical thinking is a result of not one, not two, but multiple perspectives joined together, at its root. This is perhaps easier to understand after reading James Baldwin's No Name In The Street.

The book highlights all facets of the Civil Rights Movement and America's particularly engrossing and disturbing account during the 1950s and 1960s. It brings to light the helplessness of courage. And the strength humans draw from it. No Name In The Street is a book that's quite unlike any other. A book compelling enough to rattle any cage. It takes a stance where everything must be questioned.
