Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As much as this book will tell you about King, it will tell you more about how black people were treated in this country fifty years ago. It may shock you; it should make you think.” Washington Post
“[A] fine and informative look at the crossover between labor actions and civil rights...This is an excellent source for curricular extension in American history courses.” School Library Journal
“This is history from the ground up, and Bausum makes good use of oral histories, newspapers, pamphlets, letters, and photographs to tell her tale.” Kirkus Reviews
