"This monograph breaks ground-moving the reader beyond the `popular' narrative of the civil rights movement, which has largely been top-down, male-centered, and regionally focused, and infuses a multi-genre literary lens to interpret one of the most important historical event of the past." Thomas L. Bynum, Associate Professor of History, Middle Tennessee State University.
