We shall not be moved : the desegregation of the University of Georgia by Robert A Pratt( )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning with Ward's unsuccessful application to the university and equally unsuccessful suit, Robert A. Pratt offers a rigorously researched account of the tumultuous events surrounding the desegregation of Georgia's flagship institution. Relying on archival materials and oral histories, Pratt debunks the myths encircling the landmark 1961 decision to accept black students into the university: namely the notion that the University of Georgia desegregated with very little violent opposition. Pratt shows that when Ward, by then a lawyer, helped litigate for the acceptance of Hamilton Earl Holmes and Charlayne Alberta Hunter, University of Georgia students, rather than outsiders, carefully planned riots to encourage the expulsion of Holmes and Hunter
The color of their skin : education and race in Richmond, Virginia, 1954-89 by Robert A Pratt( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first major study of school desegregation in a Virginia locality to appear in over twenty-five years, this book traces the evolution of the Richmond public schools from segregation to desegregation to resegregation over the decades following the Brown decision. The author explores the undercurrents of white opposition to the dismantling of the "separate but equal" system and analyzes the overall impact of the process on the life of the city. In doing so he has given us a portrait of a society moving, in some ways, backward in time. -- Back cover

Selma's Bloody Sunday : protest, voting rights, and the struggle for racial equality by Robert A Pratt( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One can point to more than a few 'critical moments' in the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Even so, few incidents so starkly etched the just-treatment claims of the struggle and the raw brutality of the forces arrayed against its protagonists as did the attempted marches from Selma to the state capital in Montgomery, Alabama, in the spring of 1965. ... In March of that year the full force of the state of Alabama--state troopers with nightsticks, some mounted--fell on unarmed protestors as they crossed a bridge leading out of Selma, beating them and continuing to flail at them most of the way back into town. This ... event, much of it caught on television tape, helped the president and fellow Democrats decide to make enforcement of voting rights in the South the subject of special federal legislation. Pratt makes 'Bloody Sunday' the focus of a short book on the civil rights as voting rights movement, its background, and the continuing controversy over federal laws that benefit blacks specifically and impose sanctions on states with histories of impeding voting rights for all citizens"--
