Description - Nobody Gonna Turn Me 'Round by Doreen Rappaport
This is a highly illustrated account of the black civil rights movement in America. Chronicling the struggles of the black civil rights movement from the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott up until the 1965 Voting Rights Bill, this powerful anthology weaves together songs, poems, memoirs, letters and court testimonies of those active in the movement, along with a meticulously researched historical narrative. It tells the stories of as yet uncelebrated heroes, alongside more familiar figures like Dr Martin Luther King Jr and Rosa Parks and creates a powerful and moving account of what it means to be free - and what it is to be human.
