Civil rights, 1960's Mississippi, racism, classism, a huge grassroots Head Start Project (black people vs. the U.S. government), unique education for low-income children (in inspiring detail), social change (rapid reform, the author calls it). A sunken treasure, published in the 60's by Macmillan & out of print for 15 years, a remarkable piece of history rescued. Can be read as 1. the ignored chapter in 60's Mississippi civil rights history when protest became program & black people were finally freed from financial slavery ...
