9780252060625: Diary of a Sit-In (Blacks in the New World)

This is the first-person account of Proudfoot, who participated in the 1960 sit-in in Knoxville, Tennessee. This diary comments with modesty, directness, and a deep sense of Christian responsibility on the individuals, the organizations, and the races involved and upon social justice in general. It is a book of great authority, in the New Testament sense of that word.

Review:

"What emerges, and endures, is the picture of a man who, in spite of himself, had to take part and, much to his own surprise, found bravery in himself... He saw and set down a moving portrait of the south in the torment of change." -- The Nation
