Product Description

In this monumental volume, Henry Hampton, creator and executive producer of the acclaimed PBS series "Eyes on the Prize", and Steve Fayer, series writer, draw upon nearly one thousand interviews with civil rights activists, politicians, reporters, Justice Department officials, and hundreds of ordinary people who took part in the struggle, weaving a fascinating narrative of the civil rights movement told by the people who lived it.
Join brave and terrified youngsters walking through a jeering mob and up the steps of Central High School in Little Rock. Share in the pivotal confrontation between the Freedom Riders and Klansmen. Sit in on the founding of the Black Panther party with Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. Listen to the vivid voices of the ordinary people who manned the barricades, the laborers, the students, and the housewives without whom there would have been no civil rights movement at all.
Read the memorable words of Coretta Scott King, Rosa Parks, Tom Hayden, Walter Mondale, Muhammad Ali, Angela Davis, Jesse Jackson, and many more. This remarkable oral history brings to life this country's great struggle for civil rights as no conventional narrative can. You will hear the voices of those who defied the billyclubs, who went to jail, who witnessed and policed the movement; of those who stood for and against--voices from the heart of America.
