I love the book and the depth of historical analysis it brings to the topic. Highly recommend it for history classes especially as well as any classes or groups focusing on this period, and this topic.
I had to read this book for my college history course on the Civil Rights Movement and Youth Activisim.
I had previously read John Lewis's memoir "Walking with The Wind" which discussed the earlier part of the movement with Martin Luther King Jr. and the sit ins, the freedom rides, and the speeches. This book is set at the end of the 60's and early 70's and discusses how the youth on college campuses (San Francisco, Chicago, Brooklyn) took over their campus to force administration to meet their demands and include African-American and Ethnic studies courses as well as Black teachers.
It was a well-written book, and I liked how she organized her writing.
