Publisher's Summary

From the Montgomery bus boycott to the Little Rock Nine to the Selma-Montgomery march, thousands of ordinary people participated in the American civil rights movement; their stories are told in Eyes on the Prize.

From leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr., to lesser-known figures such as Barbara Rose Johns and Jim Zwerg, each man and woman made the decision that something had to be done to stop discrimination. These moving accounts of the first decade of the civil rights movement are a tribute to the people, black and white, who took part in the fight for justice and the struggle they endured.

Thorough and well performed history

Excellent book. It shows how the Civil Rights movement was so much more than Martin Luther King, Jr. and the other larger name individuals. The performance was very good and never dry. There is an added epilogue that tells what happened to most of the various individuals mentioned in the book up until about 2013 or so.

Great book to listen to in the car on your commute to work or a long road trip.
