Description
"Separate But Equal" facilities and Jim Crow laws provide the realistic backdrop for this visual history of the civil rights movement. The most dramatic moments in the fight for equality are presented, from the historic case of Plessy v. Ferguson to roles of many prominent African Americans like Booker T. Washington, Marcus Garvey, A. Philip Randolph, Thurgood Marshall, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Interviews with Andrew Young, James Farmer and other leading authorities illuminate the enduring spirit that inspired bus boycotts, lunch counter sit-ins, freedom marches and demonstrations.
