Alabama’s Civil Rights Trail: An Illustrated Guide to the Cradle of Freedom



Alabama’s Civil Rights Trail: An Illustrated Guide to the Cradle of Freedom

By Frye Gaillard, with Jennifer Lindsay and Jane DeNeefe

Foreword by Juan Williams

Published by University of Alabama Press

“Frye Gaillard artfully narrates the lives of those who took the first steps toward freedom, those who risked everything to carry the fight forward, those who fought every step of the way, and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their convictions. Alabama's role in the history of civil rights is truly exceptional, as this guide to the 'Cradle of Freedom' makes abundantly evident.”
-- Juan Williams
