Reviews

"It was my privilege to meet Joan Trumpauer Mulholland in 1961 when she was one of a dozen nonviolent, civil rights activists embarking on a risky, inter-racial bus ride from Washington, D.C. to the heart of the deep South. As a reporter, it was my role to follow their journey and let the world know what they encountered as they faced down a lawless system of racial injustice. Now, as then, I am humbled by their courage and the changes they brought about in our society. This well-written and beautifully illustrated book is one to be savored and shared with future generations who may need to look within themselves for similar courage."--Simeon Booker, award-winning journalist and author of Shocking the Conscience: A Reporter s Account of the Civil Rights Movement (02/10/2016)"
