Abstract

In The Sit-Ins: Protest and Legal Change in the Civil Rights Era, Christopher W. Schmidt offers a new account of the crucial civil rights protest inspired by the first 'sit-in' by four college students in Greensboro, North Carolina, in 1960. Focusing on the legal issues and constitutional challenges posed by the sit-in movement, the book is a valuable and accessible tool for students and teachers of US and African American history and a reminder of the power of such gestures towards freedom, writes Eraldo S. Santos.
