30 Seconds to Zero: The Crusader Collection, Second Edition


30 Seconds To Zero: The Crusader Collection is an assemblage
of the work of Mabel and Robert F. Williams from their
newsletter ‘The Crusader’. From its inception in Monroe, North
Carolina, ‘The Crusader’ appealed for Black militancy and
armed self-defense. It was the official propaganda organ of the
first Black self-defense militia activated as a security force for
the civil rights movement and local NAACP. Mabel Williams’
pivotal contributions to revolutionary history in particular have
been largely left in the whirlwind, and she is cited infrequently
compared to her husband and co-author.
