The book gives a grass roots story of the civil rights movement in a southern time during the 1960s. A reviewer from the educational radio rated it the best book on the civil rights revolution because it was relatively brief and had a positive note. It is a success story of the handling of racial issues in the South during the turbulent 1960. So novel was the cities appointment of a biracial human relations council that President Kennedy cited it as a model of all southern towns. It is unique also in that it is written by a white southerner as he experinced the dangers and threats of the Ku Klux Klan. It has the endorsement of the former Governor of Mississippi, William Winter and former Ambassotor of the United Nations, Andrew Young. Among other reviews it had been reviewed in the magazine of the Cambridge Society of Cambridge University. It was nominated for the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award. It is a splendid and informative book about the Civil Right struggle.
