The American civil rights movement of the 1950s, and 1960s was spurred by innumerable heros who earned small triumphs in the face of epic intolerance and terror. [This book] reveals what it mean to fight the most intractably racist bureaucracy of the Tim Crow era. [In the book, the editor] ha[s] created a vibrant portrait of an activist at work. The result is both a tribute to a civil rights hero and a living testament to the power of grassroots political action to change our lives for the better.-Dust jacket.
