Freedom Bound Movement

       Freedom Bound is a vivid, admirably balanced, superbly written chronicle of one of the most stirring popular movements in American history: the struggle for black equality. In this single volume Robert Weisbrot gives us the full story of the civil rights movement - from its rise with the Brown decisions and the Montgomery bus boycott in the 1950s, through the dramatic sit-ins, freedom rides, marches, and great legislative achievments of the 1960s, to its decline in the urban riots and disputes over community control and affirmative action in the late 1960s and 1970s. And Weisbrot shows that the movement foundered when it shifted course from political to social goals, running aground on the rocks of race and class that have long been obstacles to reform. Here we have the movement not just of Martin Luther King Jr., but of Bob Moses, Bayard Rustin, Malcom X, Stokely Carmichael, and James Meredith. Freedom Bound is also the story of ordinary people, including Rosa Parks, Ezell Blair, Jr., and Fannie Lou Hamer, who often had their leaders scrambling in an effort to keep up. Eloquent and painstakingly researched, comprehensive yet concise, Freedom Bound offers an unparalleled tour of black protest in the modern era.
