A unique catalog of historic civil rights events. From the Quakers’ 17th-century antislavery resolution, to slave uprisings during the Civil War, to the infamous Orangeburg Massacre in 1968, and beyond, authors Horace Randall Williams and Ben Beard present a vivid collection of 366 events — one for every day of the year plus Leap Day — chronicling African Americans’ battle for human dignity and self-determination.
Every day of the year has witnessed significant events in the struggle for civil rights. This Day in Civil Rights History is an illuminating collection of these cultural turning points. [Publisher’s description.]
