Andrew Young has written a valuable overview of the Civil Rights Movement that one hopes will reach many people of all ages. Young's narration is clear and straightforward. He articulately outlines the sequence of events in which he participated--the planning of marches and demonstrations, his close association with Martin Luther King, Jr. and historic events that unfolded. This work gains power and import from Young's narrative; the steady, unemotional recounting is deeply moving. The concise nature of the program is also useful, and Young distinguishes the events in Birmingham, Montgomery and Selma with details of the leaders' intent and the actual outcomes. This important historical memoir will move and enlighten listeners. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
