We previewed many books about the Civil Rights movement before settling on this history of the modern Civil Rights movement. In it, the author focuses on the monumental events that occurred between 1954 and 1968. Be aware that Mcwhorter doesn’t sugar coat how the blacks were treated and therefore there are words and pictures that aren’t appealing at all to anyone’s senses. You truly relive the horror of the times, but gain an understanding of the reasons behind boycotts and Freedom Rides.
