Dream of Freedom: The Civil Rights Movement From 1954 to 1968by Diane McWhorter
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
In this history of the modern Civil Rights movement, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Diane McWhorter focuses on the monumental events that occurred between 1954 (the year of Brown v. Board of Education) and 1968 (the year that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated). Beginning with an overview of the movement since the end of the Civil War, McWhorter also discusses such events as the 1956 MTGS bus boycott, the 1961 Freedom Rides, and the 1963 demonstration in Birmingham, Alabama, among others.
"This clear-eyed account of the civil-rights movement's most vicious years should be required reading....
"Diane McWhorter manages tells the story of the civil rights movement beautifully....What could have been a very disjointed book manages to hold together well and does justice to its important subject." Joan Kindig, Ph.D., Children's Literature
