As usual, Russell Freedman renders his subject accessible, fascinating and emotionally immediate. (Not that the subject isn't emotionally loaded to begin with). The volume is loaded with contemporary photos of people and events, and the text is peppered with quotations from boycotters who were as eloquent as they were courageous. Just reading the Rev. Dr. King's words to one of the rallies made me want to carpool to work in protest. Freedman does no more than justice to an incredibly vital passage of American history.
