Excellent interviews in peoples' own words. The interviews are not with the national leaders or the people who are always quoted. Rather, they are with the relatively unknown people who made up the grassroots of the civil rights movement, as well as with their opponents.
This book is superbly edited by Raines to tell a thousand stories in a compelling and unique way.
