Weary Feet, Rested Souls: A Guided History of the Civil Rights Movement
"Weary Feet, Rested Souls is a valuable and beautiful road map to a landscape we must not forget."—Marian Wright Edelman, president of the Children's Defense FundThirty years after the Civil Rights Movement transformed America, Weary Feet, Rested Souls brings the landscape of this compelling period of history back to life. Logging 30,000 miles of research and more than 100 hours of interviews with Civil Rights veterans, Townsend Davis has written both a history of the struggle and an indispensable traveler's guidebook to Civil Rights in the Deep South. Ranging from Martin Luther King, Jr.'s childhood neighborhood to Philadelphia, Mississippi, where three Civil Rights workers were murdered, to Selma and Birmingham and scores of other sites, Weary Feet, Rested Souls is a uniquely inspiring and deeply commemorative guide to the Movement and its heroes.

Weary feet, rested souls: a guided history of the Civil Rights MovementUser Review - Book Verdict
What Charles Blockson did in The Hippocrene Guide to the Underground Railroad (Hippocrene, 1994) in mapping escape routes from slavery, New York City writer and lawyer Davis does for the Civil Rights movement in the South from 1954 to 1968. Wending a path through Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee, Davis marks sites of battles against segregation and of bases for building civil equality for black Americans. He sets the scene with maps and sketches of local history and adds human interest with boxed vignettes, photos, and updates of movement participants. An appendix of historic sites and a chronology reinforce both the focus on place and a sense of time in the movement. An engaging popular history and suitable travel companion, this book is recommended for collections for young adults or on civil rights, the contemporary United States, blacks, or the South.--Thomas J. Davis, Arizona State Univ., Tempe
