Black and White: The Confrontation of Reverence Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Eugene "Bull" Connor Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the nineteen fifties and early sixties, Birmingham, Alabama, became known as Bombingham. At the center of this violent time in the fight for civil rights, and standing at opposite ends, were Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Eugene "Bull" Connor. From his pulpit, Shuttlesworth agitated for racial equality, while Commissioner Connor fought for the status quo. Relying on court documents, police and FBI reports, newspapers, interviews, and photographs, author Larry Dane Brimner first covers each man's life and then brings them together to show how their confrontation brought about significant change to the southern city. The author worked closely with Birmingham's Civil Rights Institute as well as with Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and his wife to bring together this Robert F. Sibert Honor Book, ALA Notable Children’s book, and Kirkus Reviews Best Children’s Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

A riveting account of the racially-charged events that shook Birmingham, AL in the '50's and '60's, focusing on the lives and interactions of two key figures: Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth, pastor of the Bethel Baptist church and founder of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and Eugune Bull Conner, city commissioner and segregationist. Following the critical success of Birmingham Sunday, noted author Larry Dane Brimner weaves together a plethora of primary source archival material to create a fascination portrait of American Civil Right history: oral histories, court documents, police and FBI reports, newspaper clippings, and interviews with Rev. Shuttlesworth and his wife.
