On the Road to Freedom

Annotation
"Charles Cobb leads us from Washington, D.C., through eight Southern states to visit the places where pioneers of the civil rights movement fought for freedom. This in-depth look at the movement - its long history, its stunning triumphs, its devastating losses, and its brave participants - goes off the beaten path to give us the real grassroots story in the words of those who lived it."--BOOK JACKET.
