About this title


On August 27, 1960, more than 200 whites with ax handles and baseball bats attacked members of the Jacksonville Youth Council NAACP in downtown Jacksonville who were sitting in at white lunch counters protesting racism and segregation. Referred to as Ax Handle Saturday, the award winning "It was never about a hot dog and a Coke" chronicles the racial and political climate of Jacksonville, Florida in the late fifties, the events leading up to that infamous day, and the aftermath.

From the Author:

It Was Never About a Hot Dog and a Coke won the 2008 National Best Books Award for Multicultural Nonfiction, the 2009 Independent Publishers Award Silver Medal for Southeast Best Regional Nonfiction, the Bronze Medal in the 2008 Florida Book Awards Nonfiction category, the Florida Historical Society 2009 Inaugural Stetson Kennedy Award, the Jacksonville Florida 2009 Historic Preservation Commission Historic Preservation Award, the 2008 Sabrina Book Reviews Best Book Award, and the 2008 Sabrina Book Reviews General Nonfiction Award.
