In this inspiring collection of true stories, 30 African-Americans who were children or teenagers in the 1950s and 1960s talk about what it was like for them to fight segregation in the South-- to sit in an all-white restaurant and demand to be served, to refuse to give up a seat at the front of the bus, to be among the first to integrate the public schools, and to face violence, arrest, and even death for the cause of freedom.
