About the Author:

Juan Williams is an American journalist and a political analyst for Fox News. He also writes for several newspapers including the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal and was a senior news analyst for National Public Radio from 1999 until 2010.

Julian Bond is an American social activist, professor, writer, and politician with more than twenty years of service in Georgia’s legislative chambers. He was also the chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People from 1998 until 2010.

From Library Journal:

This companion volume to the PBS TV series of the same name is an excellent, highly readable account of black America's struggle for social and political equality, covering the civil rights battle from the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision in 1954 to the Selma protest marches and Voting Rights Act of 1965. Williams focuses upon specific key events, providing a narrative overview of each, interspersed with photographs and excerpts from interviews and writings of the participants. He gives a vivid portrait of the courage of individual blacks and the violence they had to endure in their struggle for desegregation and the right to vote in the South. The events themselves provide the drama. Recommended for academic and public libraries. BOMC alternate. Louis Vyhnanek, Washington State Univ. Lib., Pullman
