Summary: A stirring and saddening account of the Mississippi Summer Project of 1964 and the turning of the civil rights movement in America. Mills recalls the triumphs of the episode but also shows how the quest for racial solidarity turned divisive and laid the foundations for the black power movement. A very moving book, a chronicle of a remarkable moment. --Studs Terkel. Extremely readable and fair-minded....Mills lets participants speak for themselves, which many of them do with a touching eloquence. --New York Times Book Review
