Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Jo Ann Robinson, a major organizer of the Montgomery bus boycott, offers a new and convincing account of the origins of the protest that triggered the entire civil rights movement and launched the career of Martin Luther King, Jr. In an absorbing, first-hand narrative, the dignified and unassuming Robinson focuses on the role of the Women's Political Council (WPC) and details the WPC's plans to engineer a boycott months before the heralded arrest of Rosa Parks.
