Pieces from the Past: Voices of Heroic Women in Civil Rightsby Joan Sadoff
Pieces from the Past is unique in that it presents little known incidents, personal anecdotes and heroic behavior of several women of the Civil Rights Movement who helped change the political, social and racial landscape of the South in the 1960s. The stories are written by the women who are able to write them, or by friends and/or relatives who knew them intimately. Some of the stories are written by well–known authors and writers, and others by family members.
These women were dedicated to the cause of freedom and distinguished themselves through commitment and bravery. Their stories must be told and they must be remembered as leaders of the Civil Rights Movement.
The authors in this volume include Joanne Prichard Morris, Betty Pearson, Stanley Dearman, Constance Slaughter Harvey, Joan Mulholland, John C. Brittain, Lawrence Guyot Rose Freeman Massey, Charles McLaurin, Regena Lynn Thomas, Barbara Devine Russell, Land, Constance Curry, Gloria Dickerson, Kempton Horton, and Bill Minor.
