By Robin Friedman HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 24, 2013
Format: Hardcover
The Library of America published two separate volumes titled "Reporting Civil Rights" in 2003 to commemorate what was then the 40th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington. Ten years later, in 2013, the Library of America has republished the books as a two-volume box set in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the historic March. The books offer first-hand source material taken from American journalism of the Civil Rights movement. The first volume covers the years 1941 -- 1963 REPORTING CIVIL RIGHTS. Part One: American Journalism 1941-1963. Part Two: American Journalism 1963-1973. 2 volumes. while the second volume covers the history from 1963 -- 1973 Reporting Civil Rights, Part Two: American Journalism 1963-1973 (Library of America). The August 28, 1963 March is the ceterpiece of the study as it begins the second volume. I read and reviewed here on Amazon the two individual volumes when first published in 2003, and I took the opportunity to revisit the books when published together as a box set.

The set consists of 2000 pages and covers over thirty years of the African American Civil Rights movement. It includes about 200 separate entries and eyewitness accounts to the events it describes by 150 different authors. Besides presenting the written word, each volume includes a separate set of 32 photographs, many of them published for the first time. The books include a detailed chronology of the years covered together with biographical notes on each writer represented in the collection.

The first volume begins in 1941 with A.

I was alive in 65, white and in Mississippi, and I remember some terrible things that happened in that era. I bought these books to refresh my memory, and guess what -- it was worse that I thought. If you weren't around then, this will be eye-opening and enraging, and will show just how much determination, resolution and sheer, downright guts the civil rights movement had to have, the awfulness of the opposition to it -- and some sad excesses that opposition provoked. But "those who do not remember the past are doomed to repeat it."
