Voices of Freedom: An Oral History of the Civil Rights Movement from the 1950s Through the 1980s
By Hampton, Henry; Fayer, Steve; Flynn, Sarah
In this monumental volume, Henry Hampton, creator and executive producer of the acclaimed PBS series "Eyes On The Prize," and Steven Fayer, series writer, draw upon nearly one thousand interviews with civil rights activists, politicians, reporters, Justice Department officials, and hundreds of ordinary people who took part in the struggle, weaving a fascinating narrative of the civil rights movement and the people who lived it.
Read the memorable words of Coretta Scott King, Rosa Parks, Tom Hayden, Walter Mondale, Muhammed Ali, Angela Davis, Jesse Jackson and many more.
This remarkable oral history brings to life this country's great struggle for civil rights as no conventional narrative can. You will hear the voices of those who defied the billyclubs, who went to jail, who witnessed and policed the movement; of those who stood for it and against it -- voices from the heart of America.
