Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Jim Carrier takes us to the street corners and bus stops where ordinary people changed America. In his beautifully written and easy-to-use guide, he captures their sacrifice and triumphs. Everyone should visit these hallowed sites. With this guidebook in hand, you will be impressed, as I was, by the lasting power of the civil rights story."--Morris Dees , cofounder and lead counsel for the Southern Poverty Law Center

From the public schools where Brown v. Board of Education was first implemented to the Southern cities where boycotts, sit-ins, and marches mobilized a generation of brave Americans, A Traveler's Guide to the Civil Rights Movement traces a path through one of the most signifi cant eras in our country's history.

Visit the bus where Rosa Parks made her historic stand; make a pilgrimage to Martin Luther King, Jr.'s boyhood home and tomb; or explore the vast, underappreciated black history from which our modern civil rights movement arose. Packed with maps, suggested tours, fascinating anecdotes, and thoughtful commentary, this unique guidebook will allow travelers to explore civil rights landmarks both famous and forgotten.

Includes State and City Tours In:

Washington, D.C.*Virginia*North Carolina*South Carolina*Georgia*Florida*Alabama *Mississippi*Louisiana*Arkansas*Tennessee*Kansas*Kentucky*Maryland*and more
