Summary
Benjamin Hedin set out to look for the Civil Rights movement. He profiles legendary figures like John Lewis, Robert Moses, and Julian Bond, and also visits with contemporary leaders such as William Barber II and the staff of the Dream Defenders. But just as powerful--and instructional--are the stories of those whose work goes unrecorded, the organizers and teachers who make all the rest possible. In these pages the movement is portrayed as a vibrant tradition of activism that remains in our midst. In Search of the Movement is a fascinating meditation on the patterns of history, as well as an indelible look at the meaning and limits of American freedom
Summary
"Benjamin Hedin set out to look for the civil rights movement. He profiles legendary figures, such as John Lewis, Robert Moses, and Julian Bond, and also visits with contemporary leaders, including Reverend William Barber II of Moral Mondays and the staff of the Dream Defenders. But just as powerful--and instructional--are the stories of those whose work goes unrecorded, the organizers and teachers who make all the rest possible. In these pages the movement is portrayed as never before, as a vibrant tradition of activism that remains in our midst. Hedin provides a fascinating meditation on the patterns of history, as well as an indelible look at the meaning and limits of American freedom."--Page 4 of cover
