The Civil Rights Movement Paperback
Part of the Seminar Studies series
The civil rights movement was arguably the most important reform 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. 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.
