📙 We Shall Not Be Moved: The Jackson Woolworth's Sit-In and the Movement It Inspired by M.J. O'Brien, narrator Mike McCartney


4


Once in a great while, a certain photograph captures the essence of an era: Three people - one black and two white - demonstrate for equality at a lunch counter while a horde of cigarette-smoking hotshots pour catsup, sugar, and other condiments on the protesters' heads and down their backs. This iconic image strikes a chord for all who lived through those turbulent times of a changing America. The photograph, which plays a central role in the audiobook's perspectives from frontline participants, caught a moment when the raw virulence of racism crashed against the defiance of visionaries. Sadly, this same sit-in and the protest events it inspired led to the assassination of Medgar Evers, who was leading the charge in Jackson for the NAACP. We Shall Not Be Moved puts the Jackson Woolworth's sit-in into historical context. Part multifaceted biography, part well-researched history, this gripping narrative explores the hearts and minds of those participating in this harrowing sit-in experience. It was a demonstration without precedent in Mississippi - one that set the stage for much that would follow in the changing dynamics of the state's racial politics, particularly in its capital city. The book is published by the University Press of Mississippi. ©2014 University Press of Mississippi (P)2014 Redwood Audiobooks
