Praise

 ”Richly illustrated, this deserves a place alongside other important depictions of this story.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review 
 
* “Commemorating the upcoming 50th anniversary of the 1965 march for voting rights from Selma to Montgomery, Freedman delivers a thorough account of the context and events leading up to and through this momentous protest….The momentum-building narrative and often-graphic b&w photos captivate as they recount demonstrations big and small: from sit-ins and ‘wade-ins’ (for desegregated beaches) to the well-known Selma schoolteachers’ march and ‘Bloody Sunday’ at the Edmund Pettus Bridge.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review   

* “
The many well-chosen black and white photos record significant events, capture dramatic moments, and show individuals who took part in these historic events. With a timeless narrative and a timely epilogue, this handsome volume offers a vivid account of a pivotal moment in American history.” —Booklist, Starred Review
