Reviews

"Paul Ortiz's lyrical and closely argued study introduces us to unknown generations of freedom fighters for whom organizing democratically became in every sense a way of life. Ortiz changes the very ways we think of Southern history as he shows in marvelous detail how black Flordians came together to defend themselves in the face of terror, to bury their dead, to challenge Jim Crow, to vote, and to dream."
