freedom_summerThis remarkable chapter in American history is now the subject of Bruce Watson’s thoughtful, historical narrative. Using in-depth interviews with participants and residents, Freedom Summer presents finely rendered portraits of the courageous black citizens — and Northern volunteers — who refused to be intimidated in their struggle for justice, and the white Mississippians who would kill to protect a dying way of life.  [Publisher's description.]
