Book - 2003
Rate this:
Segregation and racial discrimination were facts of life for most blacks in America until the birth of civil rights movements in the 1950s and 1960s. Here is a vivid account of freedom marches, boycotts, and other nonviolent protest tactics, and of leaders who included Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King, Jr., and others.

Lives in Crisis books are vividly written historical accounts of momentous historical events and movements, supplemented with photographs, illustrations, maps, and contemporary cartoons and engravings. Illuminating sidebar material presents quotations and descriptions by men and women who were directly involved in the historic event. These easy-to-read books transform dry historical statistics and dates into intensely readable accounts, and are focused especially to serve as supplements to junior and senior high school texts. The back of each book features a brief summary of important dates, a glossary, and a recommended reading list. Available in both paperback and hardcover editions, these volumes will be welcomed by teachers for classroom use, and will also fill a valuable niche in school and public libraries.
