If Not Me Who?: What One Man Accomplished in His Battle for Equality
Stephen F. Austin State University Press, 2014 - Biography & Autobiography - 128 pages
If Not Me, Who? What One Man Accomplished in His Battle for Equality covers the life of civil rights activist and civic leader Wendell H. Baker Sr. from his birth to eighty plus years of age. Both Baker's life and his book were singularly critical achievements.
This newly edited edition of Baker's If Not Me, Who? includes materials from two other authors--retired Texas Southern University scholar Naomi W. Lede, whose work originally was also published in Baker's original book, and political leader and consultant James A. Baker, who learned from Wendell Baker and his brother that they were distant cousins.
