"Several years prior to the Supreme Court's desegregation order, students at an all-black high school in Prince Edward County, Virginia, were driven to strike against the terrible conditions there. Their complaints were eventually folded into the class-action-suit Brown v. Board of Education, and this fascinating account, co-written by Stokes, who was one of the strike's leaders, explains how, with NAACP guidance, the strikers' efforts to 'correct a molehill' shifted to a larger battle."--Booklist.
