With the passing of Mother Rosa Parks, it's important that we Americans never forget that for every Martin Luther King, Jr., there were hundreds of ordinary people who lived quietly within, but boldly worked to overthrow the segregated South. This mother-daughter duo have penned a riveting account of the Civil Rights struggle of the 1960s and 1970s. Within a format that has them alternating chapters, Patricia Floyd and Lizan Mitchell make the listener fully understand the anger, fear, moral certainty, and courage that are required of those who challenge oppression. This superb audiobook gives voice to an intimate accounting of a time usually seen only through the lives of a few illustrious people. P.R.
