Perhaps the most extensive book to date ever written on the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Let My People Go! may prove to be the encyclopedia of this pivotal event in American history. While other books written on the boycott primarily focus on the point of view of one key leader, this book discusses the boycott from several viewpoints and takes the reader on an historical journey through time, illustrating how God consistently intervened in the course of history to free His people from the evils of human injustice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Even as a child in that first mass meeting, there was never any doubt in my mind that the boycott was led by God. In writing this book...Dr. Walker has beautifully documented a miraculous event that those of us who were directly involved in the boycott experienced firsthand-the 'Miracle of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.' -- Frozenia Hall, active member of the Montgomery Improvement Association, and teenage boycott protester
...for those engrossed in the spirit of the movement and seeking coherence in today's challenges [this book] will be a delight, especially to the local civil rights groups that can remain around Montgomery and abroad...a book that captures the spirit of time...this book will place a period at the end of bus boycott history. -- Robert O. White, Humanities Professor, Alabama State University * Montgomery Advertiser *
A detailed narrative account of the boycott....Rich in detail. * The Alabama Review, January 2009 *
While Walker is not the first to focus on the role of Christian faith in the bus boycott, his approach is innovative in that he posits God's presence at each stage of the protest. A particular strength of the work is its detailed reconstruction of the precipitating events that sparked the bus boycott. Walker offers biographical sketches of many of the well-known actors in the movement while also defining the importance of less celebrated figures. -- Monique Moultrie * The Journal of African American History, June 2009 *
Over the years, I have read many books about the Montgomery Bus Boycott. But none have touched me so personally and inspired me more deeply than this book, Let My People Go! As you read it, I am sure you will be as inspired by it as I am. This book should be required reading for all young people. -- Dr. Mary F. Whitt, friend of Rosa Parks and President of the NAACP Youth Council during the Montgomery Bus Boycott
