The March Against Fear

The March Against Fear

By Ann Bausum

"Bausum convincingly shows that the March Against Fear "stands as one of the greatest protests of the civil rights era" and deftly explains the many complex reasons why it was relegated to a footnote rather than a highlight in history. An exceptionally well-written and -researched chronicle of a crucial civil rights turning point." – Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review


"In a powerful and timely book, Bausum (Stonewall) focuses her attention on the last great march of the civil rights era... This exemplary look into civil rights history concludes with perspective and encouragement regarding ongoing struggles for social change." - Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review


"An edifying and timely exposition of James Meredith and the March Against Fear and their impact on U.S. history, past and present…A must-have volume on James Meredith, the March Against Fear, and the evolution of Black Power for high school students." - School Library Journal, Starred Review
