Editorial Reviews

New York Times

A searing, jolting document that will leave the reader full of that savage indignation that tears the heart.

Library Journal
LJ's reviewer dubbed this "an important documentary autobiography by a man who became one of the most important black leaders" (LJ 1/1/72). Forman here details his role as the leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, but in telling his story he is also relating that of many other Civil Rights advocates and indeed of the Sixties itself. Now featuring a new foreword by Julian Bond, this remains "moving, dramatic, at times overwhelming." Essential for Black History Month.
