Summary
"The civil rights movement was arguably the most important reform movement in American history. This book recounts the extraordinary and often bloody story of how tens of thousands of ordinary African-Americans overcame long odds to dethrone segregation, to exercise the right to vote and to improve their economic standing. Their civil rights movement required unfathomable courage and persistent agitation, during which many activists sacrificed their homes, jobs and lives." "Organized in a clear chronological fashion, the book shows how concerted pressure in a variety of forms ultimately carried the day in realizing a more just society for African-Americans. It will provide students of American history with an invaluable, comprehensive introduction to the civil rights movement."--BOOK JACKET
