    Books On US Civil Rights Movement

    I've started on Taylor Branch's MLK trilogy and it is awesome. I'm wondering where I will go afterwards. My thoughts are that city by city might be a good approach, starting with a history of the organization in Montgomery, for example. Any thoughts?

    Another issue to address is whether Branch's approach has been criticized (it seems very personality driven so far but does also give you structural context such as the gradual development of Atlanta's black middle-class into lower middle class East and black elite West).
