Moving from the black churches where the movement began in anthems, sermons, and prayers, to Washington, where the Kennedy brothers weighed the demands of a down-trodden people against the volatile realities of politics, Branch weaves a tapestry of exciting stories - the Montgomery bus boycott, the Freedom Rides, and - as the movement reached its apex - the tragedy of Kennedy's assassination. Taylor Branch is a former staff member of "The Washington Monthly", "Harper's", and "Esquire". Co-author of "Second Wind" and "Labyrinth", he is also the author of a novel "The Empire Blues".Hide synopsis
