These college students changed the world
"Somewhere Listening for My Name" shares the compelling stories of ordinary college students who accomplished extraordinary things. Students who participated in the Atlanta and Nashville student movements and the 1961 Freedom Rides knew they could be killed. Many wrote their last wills and testaments before boarding buses, holding sit ins and staging boycotts to protest segregated conditions. Their sacrifices brought about significant change in the American South. This books opens a window to their experiences and can serve as a road map to others who want to make significant changes in their communities.
