Praise

“In the hands of Adam Fairclough, BETTER DAY COMING, does more than any other book to place the historic Civil Rights Movement within the broader scope of the Black Freedom Struggle in the twentieth century. A distinguished historian has crafted an impressive narrative of persistence and resistance, heroism and timidity. A must read for the rising generation of young people for whom the Civil Rights Movement has been relegated to ancient history.” —Steven F. Lawson Rutgers University

“Just right and badly needed. I know of no other text that covers these years. I will definitely adopt.” —Daniel Levine, Bowdoin College
