This Nonviolent Stuff’ll Get You Killed

Charles Cobb talks about his book, This Nonviolent Stuff’ll Get You Killed: How GunsThis Nonviolent Stuff'll Get You Killed book cover Made the Civil Rights Movement Possible, in which he recounts the possession and use of firearms by civil rights activists for self-protection during the 1950s and ’60s. In his book, the author examines the paradox between nonviolent activism and the role guns played in protecting activists and allowing the advancement of the civil rights movement.
