And Don t Call Me a Racist Book Description :

In this treasury of over 1,000 quotes, you will find--in the voices of Langston Hughes and the Delany sisters, for example--some of the bittersweet humor that has helped sustain blacks in this country through their long, oppressive history....Melba Patillo Beals--almost forty years after she risked death as a teenager to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas--writes in her heart-wrenching memoir of that experience: "The task that remains is to cope with our interdependence--to see ourselves reflected in every other human being and to respect and honor our differences." That is the message of this book. (from back cover).

Faubus Book Description :

This Is the First Full-length exposition of the life of Orval E. Faubus, thirty-sixth governor of the state of Arkansas, known most infamously from America's civil rights era as the governor who pitted his state against the dictates and forces of the federal government during the Little Rock Central High School desegregation crisis.Son of a poor hill farmer with egalitarian and socialist ideals, Faubus was the last governor of the state who could claim a log-cabin childhood. He used that populist, country boy image in his campaigns and netted six terms as governor, from 1955 to 1967. In contrast to his stance against desegregation, he often followed moderate lines. For example, he forged legislative deals that allowed increased spending on education and benefits for the elderly. In the same motion, he could reform like a liberal and muscle aside freedoms like a radical.Reed presents a well-written, comprehensive chronicle of these disparities as he deftly exposes the political machine Faubus built, a system of threats and favors, bloodhounds and senators, memos and innuendoes that allowed Faubus to maintain tight control over state government while garnering the broad popular support he needed to keep winning. In this close, personal history, the result of eight years of intensive research, Reed finds Faubus to be an opaque man, an insoluble mixture of cynicism and compassion, guile and grace, wickedness and goodness, and, ultimately, one of the last Americans to perceive politics as a grand game.

Bitters in the Honey Book Description :

"Most Americans are familiar with the story of what happened at Little Rock's Central High School in September of 1957. Indeed, the image of Central High's massive double staircase - and of nine black teenagers climbing that staircase, clutching their schoolbooks, surrounded by National Guardsmen with fixed bayonets - has become wedded in the American consciousness to the history of the civil-rights struggle in this country." "Now, drawing on oral histories, Beth Roy tells the story of Central High from a fresh angle. Her interviews with white alumni of Central High investigate the reasons behind their resistance to desegregation. The alumni, now near retirement age, tell stories of the shaping of white identities in the latter half of the twentieth century, of dissatisfaction and even anger lingering still after forty years. This treatment of the Central High crisis is unique among studies done to date. It will help readers to better comprehend the complexity of racism, not only as it was evidenced at Central High in 1957, but as it continues to impact our lives today."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
