"BUILDING THE BELOVED COMMUNITY" 

 Here is the manuscript for the book I co-authored with Robert Coughlin called Building the Beloved Community: Maurice McCrackin's Life for Peace and Civil Rights. It was published in 1992 by Temple University Press and has since gone out of print. Temple granted me the rights to publication, and I offer the book here for your personal use. Please request permission if you plan to duplicate portions for distribution or sale. My thanks to Michele Peers and Susan Bechtel for help in putting the book on the web.
