  1. Pieces From the Past

    Pieces From the Past

    $14.95

    Pieces from the Past is unique in that it presents little known incidents, personal anecdotes and heroic behavior of several women of the Civil Rights Movement who helped change the political, social and racial landscape of the South in the 1960s.

    The stories are written by the women who are able to write them or by friends and/or relatives who knew them intimately. Some are written by well-known authors and writers, and others by family members.

    These women were dedicated to the cause of freedom and distinguished themselves through commitment and bravery. Their stories must be told and they must be remembered as leaders of the Civil Rights Movement.

    The authors in this volume include Joanne Prichard Morris, Betty Pearson, Stanley Dearman, Constance Slaughter Harvey, Joan Mulholland, John C. Brittain, Lawrence Guyot, Rose Freeman Massey, Charles McLaurin, Regena Lynn Thomas, Jane Maher, Barbara Devine Russell, Monica Land, Constance Curry, Gloria Dickerson, Kempton Horton, and Bill Minor.


    ”Joan Sadoff, in her book Pieces from the Past: Voices of Heroic Women in Civil Rights, gives voice to courageous black and white women whose determination, selflessness and sacrifices were instrumental in the success of the civil rights movement in the United States in the 1960s. These insightful experiences are a testament to the power of women during this significant time in our history. As a result of their achievements, women today will be inspired and motivated in continuing efforts to bring about needed social change.” – Ione D. Vargus, Ph.D., Former Dean, School of Social Work, Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Learn More Add to Wishlist

    Walk through the extraordinarily tumultuous 20th century with Harry Greissman. His story recounts the issues so many Americans faced then and now, well into the 21st century: Immigration. Economic deprivation. Lost Love. War. Discrimination at work. The transition from urban to suburban life. A working couple raising a family. His story should resonate with most Americans.
