What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Engagingly written and forcefully argued, this is a major contribution to the history of the black freedom movement.--Charles C. Bolton, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

Hustwit's account is deeply researched and very moving, providing a nuanced look at how and why different black communities in Mississippi either did--or did not--find the resources to resist Jim Crow segregation.--John Charles Boger, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Analytically refreshing and richly sourced, Integration Now offers a thorough history of the struggle for equal rights in Holmes County--the site of the most successful movement for civil rights in all of Mississippi. A first-rate piece of work and hard to put down.--Alan Draper, St. Lawrence University
