At certain moments in the struggle to achieve civil rights, an iconic gesture or event can galvanize a people to make a leap toward their goal. This series begins with just such gestures or events—whether they are something as simple as gathering salt or sitting at a lunch counter. Each book then elaborates on that gesture, bringing the focus to the big picture of the struggle, including those who were the struggle’s main players, what they eventually achieved, and what their enduring legacy has been.
