Synopsis:

Once in a great while, a certain photograph captures the essence of an era: Three peopleone black and two whitedemonstrate for equality at a lunch counter while a horde of cigarette-smoking hotshots pour catsup, sugar, and other condiments on the protesters heads and down their backs. This iconic image strikes a chord for all who lived through those turbulent times of a changing America.

The photograph, which plays a central role in the books perspectives from frontline participants, caught a moment when the raw virulence of racism crashed against the defiance of visionaries. It now shows up regularly in books, magazines, videos, and museums that endeavor to explain Americas largely nonviolent civil rights battles of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Yet for all of the photographs prominence, the people in it and the events they inspired have only been sketched in civil rights histories. It is not well known, for instance, that it was this event that sparked to life the civil rights movement in Jackson, Mississippi, in 1963. Sadly, this same sit-in and the protest events it inspired led to the assassination of Medgar Evers, who was leading the charge in Jackson for the NAACP.

Winner of the 2014 Lillian Smith Book Award, We Shall Not Be Moved puts the Jackson Woolworths sit-in into historical context. Part multifaceted biography, part well-researched history, this gripping narrative explores the hearts and minds of those participating in this harrowing sit-in experience. It was a demonstration without precedent in Mississippione that set the stage for much that would follow in the changing dynamics of the states racial politics, particularly in its capital city.

From the Inside Flap: An up-close study of a pinnacle moment in the struggle and of those who fought for change
