The third book by American progressive activist and academic Howard Zinn (1922-2010). This chronicle of the SNCC (the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) was published the year following Zinn's firing from the faculty of Spelman College - an historically black college for women in Atlanta, GA. He was fired by the first black president of the college, Dr. Albert Manly, who accused him of insubordination and of radicalizing the students.
