Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“His lectures are accessible, comprehensive, and compelling, and Bond…was a charismatic presence. This authoritative testimony is bound to become a staple of American civil rights literature.” Booklist (starred review)
“Every chapter radiates deep wisdom, fierce historical reality, and far-sighted philosophical insights…Bond brilliantly comes to grips with what freedom, social justice, and genuine racial equality are about.” Douglas Brinkley, New York Times bestselling author
“There is no better book for learning the civil rights movement…His lessons for our movement will always be with us. An utterly invaluable resource.” Ibram X. Kendi, New York Times bestselling author
“JD Jackson narrates the compiled lectures of Julian Bond…Jackson’s deep-voiced delivery is smooth and unemotional, suiting both the topic and the sometimes disturbing subject matter. Subtly shifting vocal tones and pacing signal the reading of documents, speeches, laws, and trial results…Jackson’s steady, polished narration allows listeners to reflect while absorbing this comprehensive history.” AudioFile
