Summary

Summary

If the defenders of things-as-they were had agreed to serve the four Black students who staged the first lunch counter sit-in in 1960, they might have saved themselves a lot of trouble. But the trouble they got was well-deserved. In this collection, seven participants in the Civil Rights, Anti-War, and Women's Liberation Movements present personal histories of the political struggles which came to define the decade of the Sixties and created the world we live in today.
