Synopses & Reviews

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.

Review:

"This clear-eyed account of the civil-rights movement's most vicious years should be required reading....[T]his passionate study will take readers a long way toward understanding the enduring, personal meaning that the struggle for racial equality has for everyone." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"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
