Editorial Reviews


"This volume offers a collection of informative essays and supporting documents on the Civil Rights Movement that will stimulate classroom discussions. It expands coverage of the movement temporally and geographically, venturing away from the standard 1954-1968 time frame and ranging beyond the familiar sites of racial contention to less heralded but important ones, in the North as well as the South." Steven Lawson, Rutgers University <!--end-->

"Students and teachers alike will find much here to challenge stereotypical assumptions and to prompt critical thinking and analysis, as interpretative frameworks are constructed and defended ... Davis is able to make clear that the struggle for equal rights for African American people was one that energized and mobilized ordinary people from all walks of life to work for a common goal. The extraordinary efforts of those ordinary people changed the history of a nation forever." History: Reviews of New Books

More About the Author

Jack E. Davis has been teaching history at the university level for nearly two decades. In 2002-2003, he taught on a Fulbright award at the University of Jordan in Amman. He is now a professor of history at the University of Florida, where his work focuses on U.S. environmental history.

Davis prefers to write for an intellectually curious reader rather than an academic audience. His "Race Against Time: Culture and Separation in Natchez Since 1930" won the Charles S. Sydnor Prize for the outstanding book in southern history for 2001. "An Everglades Providence: Marjory Stoneman Douglas and the American Environmental Century," Davis's latest book, received the gold medal for best nonfiction in the Florida Book Awards. Two Charlie Awards--first place for best feature writing and for best in-depth reporting--from the Florida Magazine Association recognized his 2011 article on the Gulf of Mexico, the subject of his next book.
