All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 1993 July)
Gr 7-12-- Through these powerful words, readers can better understand the history of the African-American struggle for freedom and equality. The 24 speeches are arranged in five sections that cover slavery, emancipation and reconstruction, segregation, civil rights revolution, and an assessment of the post civil rights movement. Each section and each speech have a brief introduction; sources are appended. A signature of black-and-white photographs and reproductions is placed in the center of the book. This is a useful companion to Milton Meltzer's The Black Americans (Crowell, 1984), which includes some of the same voices but different texts, and a good source for reports, quotes, and oral readings. --Eunice Weech, M.
