This book is composed of the testimonies of thirty Southern whites who participated in the Civil Rights Movement juxtaposed against white America's intense hatred of any change in the racial status quo.
These few whites, because of their commitment to human rights, were threatened, ostracized, beaten, arrested, and jailed. Their personal stories emphasize the agonies, fears, rejection, and hurt of those few whites who took their stand alongside their black brothers and sisters. But the other side of their story is the small price they paid for the accomplishments of the Movement: redemptive suffering was no longer an academic term or theoretical concept, but reality, a way of life, a way of worshipping God. These people experienced spiritual renewal from walking with a people being led by God from a Wilderness of Oppression into a Land of Freedom.
This book is indispensable reading for anyone interested in United States history, the Civil Rights Movement, nonviolent protest, and Christian models of leadership.
