Tells the story of a small, integrated group of St. Louisans who carried out sustained campaigns that were among the earliest in the nation to end racial segregation in public accommodations. Guided by principles of nonviolent direct action, the St. Louis Committee of Racial Equality (CORE) conducted negotiations, demonstrations, and sit-ins to secure full rights for African American residents of the city. Material draws on reports from CORE newsletters, and interviews with members. Kimbrough has written other books on St. Louis history. Co-author Margaret W. Dagen is a cofounder of St. Louis CORE.
