Women in the Civil Rights Movement

While men occupied the spotlight in the fight for racial equality, women like Pauli Murray, Rosa Parks, Jo Ann Robinson, Daisy Bates, Coretta Scott King, and Diane Nash worked tirelessly on countless protests, sit-ins, and voter registration drives. Without women's support and influence, the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme court case, Montgomery bus boycotts, March on Washington, and the Little Rock Desegregation crisis would not have become important, enduring milestones in history. This compact volume gives readers fascinating information about women whose contributions to the turbulent, groundbreaking civil rights era are due credit and deserve celebration.
