Voices in Our Blood: America's Best on the Civil Rights Movement Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Newsweek managing editor Jon Meacham has compiled what the nation's best writers had to say about the movement as it happened, offering a narrative that begins before World War II and takes us to the affirmative-action wars still being fought today. The success of the civil rights movement was never inevitable, and the story of race in America is much more of a cliffhanger than most would think. Offering classic narratives by Richard Wright and Eudora Welty and the writings of artists and journalists such as Robert Penn Warren, Maya Angelou, and David Halberstam, this groundbreaking anthology is the premier source for the most important interpretations of the civil rights movement, past and present. Voices in Our Blood is a compelling history, vividly told.
