Praise

One of Slate‘s Best Nonfiction Books of the Past 25 Years and one of LitHub‘s Best Nonfiction Works of the Decade

“Breathtakingly important. . . . David France managed to simultaneously break my heart and rekindle my anger.” —Steven Petrow, The Washington Post

“Inspiring. We owe so much to those brave activists and to Mr. France for writing this vital book.” —Anderson Cooper, The Wall Street Journal
 
“France delivers a monumental punch in the gut; his book is as moving and involving as a Russian novel. . . . An intimate, searing memoir and a vivid, detailed history.” —The Washington Post

“A riveting, galvanizing account.” —The New Yorker
 
“So real to someone who witnessed it that I had to put this volume down and catch my breath.” —Andrew Sullivan, The New York Times Book Review
 
“A remarkably written and highly relevant record of what angry, invested citizens can come together to achieve, and a moving and instructive testament to one community’s refusal—in the face of ignorance, hatred and death—to be silenced or to give up.” —Chicago Tribune
