Beschreibung

In 1966 Peter Jan Honigsberg -- a young, idealistic law student -- arrived in the South to help provide legal representation for civil rights workers. Although he was based in New Orleans, most of his work was in the city of Bogalusa and in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. Bogalusa was the heart of the Louisiana movement and the home of one of the most formidable but little-known black organizations in the country -- the Deacons for Defense and Justice, the first modern-day African American organization to carry weapons and to respond with force against the Ku Klux Klan. This riveting memoir, one of only a handful of first-person full-length accounts of the civil rights movement, is both a stirring coming-of-age story and a thrilling chronicle of a remarkable era in United States history.

Portrait

Peter Jan Honigsberg is Professor of Law at the University of San Francisco.

Pressestimmen

"Honigsberg makes palpable the tension, fear and courage of both black and white activists. He clearly explains the social, political, and economic currents of the time and reinforces the narrative with over a dozen photographs." - School Library Journal "In acknowledging how the civil rights movement changed the world and his life, Honigsberg has given the reader a glimpse of the past and a rare, remarkable book." - Publishers Weekly "What [Honigsberg] contributes mostly is a behind-the-scenes view of the daily grassroots struggle of people the national audience never heard about but who made all the difference in moving the nation along the road to ending segregation." - Library Journal "A good first-person account of the civil rights movement, a coming-of-age story and a thrilling chronicle of a remarkable era in U.S. history." - Tampa Tribune-Times
