Margaret Earley Whitt’s Short Stories of the Civil Rights Movement: An Anthology allows readers to hear the voices of nameless, ordinary citizens who fought for civil rights in the ‘50s, ’60s, and ‘70s. Each of the 20 short stories focus on a particular moment in history, some public and some private.
