    One thought on “Protest at Selma: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Voting Rights Act of 1965”

    1. Garrow consistently describes every day King was not in Selma as "uneventful" or "quiet;" this even extends to the day that Jimmie Lee Jackson died. Well-researched, but blatantly ignorant of happenings outside of King and SCLC.

    2. This newly released digital version of Garrow’s outstanding, comprehensive recounting and analysis of the famous Selma demonstrations carried out by Martin Luther King Junior, other civil rights leaders, along with masses of African-American civil rights activists could not be more timely. In 2013, the Voting Rights Act passed in 1965 after a lot of effort and sacrifice was gutted. The US criminal “justice” system has drawn the eyes of the world, and they aren’t friendly eyes. Thank you, [...]

    3. Very interesting. I haven't read a lot of books about the time and have only had it covered very basically in school so I was interested to read more. Garrow has a very approachable style of writing.
