Summary
Born to a poor couple who were tenant farmers on a plantation in Mississippi, Anne Moody lived through some of the most dangerous days of the pre-civil rights era in the South. The week before she began high school came the news of Emmet Till's lynching. Before then, she had "known the fear of hunger, hell, and the Devil. But now there was...the fear of being killed just because I was black." In that moment was born the passion for freedom and justice that would change her life. She experiences first-hand the demonstrations and sit-ins organized by the NAACP, CORE, and SNCC, but her civil rights movement struggles were not only against racism but against the sexism of her fellow civil rights activists. A deeply personal story but also a portrait of a turning point in our nation's destiny, this autobiography presents history in the making, through the eyes of one of the foot soldiers in the civil rights movement
