9780156026970: Traveler's Guide to the Civil Rights Movement

In 2004, the United States will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education. As our country begins a national retrospective of the civil rights movement, here is the perfect book to help explore the long struggle toward racial equality. Part guidebook, part civil rights primer, A Traveler's Guide to the Civil Rights Movement memorializes the years 1954 to 1965 as well as the vast, underappreciated black history from which our modern civil rights movement began.
More than five million people visit civil rights and black history landmarks each year, from the National Voting Rights Museum and the King Center to lesser-known spots such as slave auction sites and the locations of crucial marches and boycotts. This guide provides suggested state and city tours of these historic places and offers thoughtful commentary on the importance of each landmark, giving us a unique lens through which to view one of America's most important social movements.

Includes suggested state and city tours in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania,
South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

From the Back Cover:

"Jim Carrier takes us to the street corners and bus stops where ordinary people changed America. In his beautifully written and easy-to-use guide, he captures their sacrifice and triumphs. Everyone should visit these hallowed sites. With this guidebook in hand, you will be impressed, as I was, by the lasting power of the civil rights story."--Morris Dees , cofounder and lead counsel for the Southern Poverty Law Center

From the public schools where Brown v. Board of Education was first implemented to the Southern cities where boycotts, sit-ins, and marches mobilized a generation of brave Americans, A Traveler's Guide to the Civil Rights Movement traces a path through one of the most signifi cant eras in our country's history.
Visit the bus where Rosa Parks made her historic stand; make a pilgrimage to Martin Luther King, Jr.'s boyhood home and tomb; or explore the vast, underappreciated black history from which our modern civil rights movement arose. Packed with maps, suggested tours, fascinating anecdotes, and thoughtful commentary, this unique guidebook will allow travelers to explore civil rights landmarks both famous and forgotten.
