it was amazing

This was an amazing book! The author clearly has done her homework and weaves quotations from the people involved in the Marches from Selma with the events leading up to and including the final march from Selma to Montgomery. The violence that was committed to the marchers is unbelievable, and makes you wonder if Gov. Wallace and law enforcement in Alabama in 1965 didn't take its lessons from Hitler and the German police. There were times when I had to put the book down, because it was so disturbing. This book could be used in a high school civics, history and English course. This story of Selma, told from the people's point of view is a testimony to youth, energy and the righteousness of justice.
