The compelling story of the earliest calls for desegregation and racial justice in the South. "Make room on your library shelf ...for John Egerton's magnificent Speak Now Against the Day . His book is a stunning achievement: a sprawling, engrossing, deeply moving account of those Southerners, black and white, who raised their voices to challenge the South's racial mores...[This] is an eloquent and passionate book, and ...one we cannot afford to forget."--Charles B. Dew, New York Times Book Review "A rich and inspiring story...[Egerton] has uncovered a buried treasure."--Studs Terkel "[A] superb book, measured but eloquent."--Dan T. Carter, Washington Post Book World |The traditional understanding of American constitutional law is that the Revolution caused a shift in the conception of the constitution from merely a description of governmental roles to a set of restrictions on the power of the state.
