Jackson Mississippi is a fascinating book written about the Civil Rights Movement in Jackson, Mississippi in the sixties. The author, John Salter, a white outsider and sociologist who served as advisor and organizer of the Civil Rights Movement in Jackson is to be commended for his ability to write about the movement in such a vivid and moving manner. Salter does an excellent job in describing the many problems encountered in striking out against the many injustices that existed in Mississippi.
