From Library Journal:

America's civil rights movement had heroes beyond Martin Luther King, owed little to federal help, and was hardly a forward march to glory from Montgomery to Selma. These are themes of Powledge, whose narrative sketch of the 1950s and 1960s, years he saw as a newspaperman, loosely cements together more than 50 interviews. A surprising range of persons speak: Julian Bond, James Farmer, and lesser-known civil rights veterans; an FBI agent; Alabama Governor John Patterson; Albany, Georgia, Police Chief Laurie Pritchett, other segregationists. "Trying something and seeing what worked and what didn't work"--such was the nature of countless heroic acts across the South, which added up to the movement portrayed with great immediacy by Powledge. His book is as rich as Henry Hampton's Voices of Freedom ( LJ 2/15/90). Highly recommended for public and college libraries; of interest to scholars, too. Photos and index not seen.
