Autobiography of J.L. Chestnut, one of the most interesting heroes of the Civil Rights Movement I have ever met (now deceased). Mr. Chestnut has an amazing testimony of the Civil Rights Movement from the perspective of being a black lawyer in Selma, Alabama. The anecdotes of what he witnessed (including the brutality of those beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge during “Bloody Sunday”) during the Civil Rights Movement makes this a must-have narrative in documenting the struggle.
Book is autographed and inscribed.
Excerpts about Martin Luther King, the Freedom Riders, and Bloody Sunday. Book is 1st edition hardback, MINT, with dust jacket. 425 pages with several sections of photos. 1990.
