really liked it
bookshelves: civil-rights, history, non-fiction, race, read-out-loud
Read from April 19 to June 19, 2010

A lot of history here--recent history--that people don't know about and should as a part of general education. Engagingly written, but occasionally pedantic. Four stars because I learned things I didn't know anything about before; three stars because it felt repetitive in places.
