Chapter 24: The Nobel Peace Prize, Chapter 25: Malcolm X, Chapter 26: Selma Summary and Analysis

King wins the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. King is shocked and humbled; he believes that the prize is won by the movement, not by him. As a result of the award, King becomes prominent all over the world. King wants to learn from the Scandinavian tradition of democratic socialism. The Prize does not end the fight for justice, however, as Mississippi needs to be forced to respect black voting rights.
