Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book tells the story of Ivory Perry, a black worker and community activist who, for more than thirty years, has distributed the leaflets, carried the picket signs, and planned and participated in the confrontations that were essential to the success of protest movements. Using oral histories and extensive archival research, George Lipsitz examines the culture of opposition through the events of Perrys life of commitment and illumines the social and political changes and conflicts that have convulsed the United States during the past fifty years.

Synopsis:

The life story of a grassroots, civil rights activist
