About the Author

Bob Zellner now lives in Fairhope, Alabama.
Atlanta-based Constance Curry is a civil rights veteran and has written several books and produced a documentary film.


Written with Curry (Silver Rights: The Story of the Carter Family's Brace Decision To Send Their Children to an All-White School and Claim Their Civil Rights), this powerful portrait of a courageous man is highly recommended for all but the smallest libraries. -- Library Journal starred review
The journey white Southerners travel in this riveting memoir, from virulent racism to acceptance of blacks' civil rights, is as momentous as any in American history. -- Publishers Weekly
[Zellner's] words ring with an honesty often lacking in some other accounts of the times, and he recreates the culture of the 1960s with candor and humility. His book corrects many false impressions and gives the true story from someone who had a foot in both worlds, who risked his life--and his future--for what he believed in, and believes in still ... This book is an eye-opener for those old enough to remember these events, and a door to understanding for those too young to recall the shaping of the world we live in today. -- Loretta Gillespie, The Decatur Daily
If you want a taste of what life on the front lines was like in the Southern civil rights movement, you have to read this book. -- Jo Freeman, Senior Women Web
