On March 25, 1965, Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke to the largest civil rights demonstration in Southern history: more than 25,000 people at the capitol in Montgomery, Alabama, at the end of a 5-day voting rights march from Selma. King’s analysis of the roots of racial segregation drew on C. Vann Woodward’s The Strange Career of Jim Crow, first published by Oxford University Press in 1955. Woodward joined the Yale faculty in 1961. He was in Montgomery that day with other historians organized by John Hope Franklin to support the march.
