Book cover image for The Sword and The Shield with pictures of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. The Sword and the Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. by Peniel E. Joseph

The Sword and the Shield is a dual biography of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. that transforms our understanding of the twentieth century's most iconic African American leaders. Peniel E. Joseph reveals a nuanced portrait of two men who, despite markedly different backgrounds, inspired and pushed each other throughout their adult lives. This is a strikingly revisionist biography, not only of Malcolm and Martin, but also of the movement and era they came to define. (Print)

In November and December 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered five lectures for the renowned Massey Lecture Series of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The collection was immediately released as a book under the title Conscience for Change, but after King's assassination in 1968, it was republished as The Trumpet of Conscience. The collection sums up his lasting creed and is his final testament on racism, poverty, and war. (eBook)

Printing Help

A new semester always brings questions from students about printing. We have created some new signage in the library and this handy Printing Guide that will help students print in color, black and white and from a laptop or mobile device in the library.

A black and white printer remains available in Founder's Hall for quick print or after-hours print jobs.

Does research cause your students anxiety?

Research from Project Information Literacy shows that 84% of students say getting started is the most difficult part about research. Librarians can help! Schedule online or F2F library instruction for your class today! We can provide information literacy and research instruction for any F2F class on main campus or at the centers. Online instruction modules are available for many specific courses and also as a basic course for anyone (students, faculty or staff) with our self-enrolled Library Research at Delta College course. Learn more about Library instruction on our How Library Instruction Works at Delta Library page.

Need instruction after library hours? No problem. We can accommodate classes that meet after 6pm.
