It wasn’t that long ago that black citizens had to move to the back of the bus. In this stirring collection, NPR tells stories large and small: of Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, and the March on Washington; of Pullman porters, an invaluable green book, and women who baked pies to support the Montgomery bus boycott. Personal recollections and historical accounts paint vivid pictures of individuals and events that transformed a nation.

About the Author:

National Public Radio (NPR) is an American privately and publicly funded non-profit membership media organization that produces and distributes news and cultural programming.

Review:

“An absorbing, informative, and often moving reminder of how bad things were and what it cost to change them. The program should be especially valuable for educational use.”
      —AudioFile

“Riveting . . . extraordinary accounts of courage and valor. This impressive collection deserves a prominent spot in audio collections.”
       —Booklist [starred review]

“The personal reflections and historical accounts are alternately riveting, moving, and shocking but at all times a reminder of the power of the human spirit. This is a potent rendering of some of the most important civil rights events. VERDICT As a short, quick overview of this important part of our nation’s history, this is unbeatable; listeners will be moved to tears at times by the compelling narration. Highly recommended for anyone interested in U.S. history and/or civil rights.”
       —Library Journal [starred review]
