A WORTHY COMPANION  May 29, 2008
This is a very good book on its own. But, as a companion to the series Eyes On The Prize, it's priceless. A book that should be in every american home. A part of United States history that should be required reading in our schools. Wake Up, America.
 
A great insight into the civil rights movement  Feb 26, 2008
The book really showed all of the little steps, and big sacrifices, that individuals made which cumulatively created the momentum that allowed for the success of The Civil Rights Movement. I thought is was a thorough book which was very well written and was very moving. Also it serves as a reminder to the reader what types of individual actions are needed in order to affect a change at the government level.
 
Documentary that reads like a spell-binding fiction  Jan 5, 2007
In October 06, I watched 2 parts of the PBS series with the same title. It became clear to me for the first time the kind of grossly unfair treatment, injustice that African American had to endure, as recently as the 1960s. After seeing the book on this site, I know I have to get this. The book was even better than the TV episodes. Absolutely riveting and couldn't put it down. The descriptive parts were intermingled with first hand accounts from courageous African American men and women who were willing to, and many did, lose their lives to stand up to injustice. A must read that gives unparalleled insight into a decade of American Civil Rights history.
 
very educational  Aug 17, 2006
I have never seen the PBS series but I enjoyed the book which gives a good account of what happened in the years 54-65. Of course it misses things but it will give you the basics.

Only annoying thing are the little interviews with people in the middle of the text so you have to flip back and forth.

Pictures are great
 
An Excellent Primer  Apr 28, 2004
By now the number of volumes written on the Civil Rights Movement could fill whole libraries. Yet fifteen years later, this book still stands as one of the best introduction to the early years of the movement. Books such as Taylor Branch's Pillar of Fire and Parting the Waters may cover the same era of 1954 to 1965; this book is a good introduction for those who may be intimidated by Branch's comprehensive volumes. Rather than trying to cover everything, the book takes its cues from the documentary series and examines a select set of pivotal moments of the movement: school desegregation, the Montgomery bus boycott, the march on Washington, the Selma to Montgomery march and others. Each chapter delves into the story of the events, but also fleshes out the areas between these momentous events, both telling the background and hearing the experiences of those there, in their own words. The book is readable, not the dry tone that many associate with history books. But most of all it gives the reader the chance to delve into an important part of American history in the second half of the 20th century. This is an excellent book that should be picked up by anyone wanting to get a sense of where America was moving in these pivotal eleven years.
