This is an invaluable account of the commemoration of the defining event of the American Civil Rights Movement in the 1960's. Through a field study told as an anecdotal personal narrative this book tells the story of how race relations in America have progressed since the 1950's and 60's. Dr. Jans-Thomas travels through several towns in Alabama on her way to the 40th Anniversary Commemoration of Bloody Sunday, where many activists lost their lives marching in favor of voting rights for African-Americans. She describes in detail the social implications of historical events that transpired during the American Civil Rights movement. The events had a tremendous impact on the southern communities. In the book she shows a broader representation of African Americans there at the current time. Which would have been impossible without the sacrifice of these brave Freedom Fighters.
