A gripping account of the last great Civil Rights march--from Memphis TN to Jackson MS in August, 1966. Bausum tells this well-written and suspenseful story chronologically, and fills with of documented quotations, photographs, and informative details. Timely, too, in her efforts to explain the climate of the time: "Othering breeds a curious loop of fear." (10-14. K. Isaacs)
