Summary
In this eloquent, compassionate memoir, Bob Graetz describes how in 1955 he was a young white Lutheran minister assigned to a black church in Montgomery, Alabama. Before the year was out, Rosa Parks was arrested and the Bus Boycott began. Graetz became the only local white minister who supported the boycott, and he and his family were thrust into the center of the year-long struggle that kicked off the modern Civil Rights Movement. The Graetz family endured bombings, arrests, and regular harassment, but they also rejoiced in the remarkable spirit of a black community throwing off the shackles of segregation. Graetz's memoir describes the inner workings of the boycott and gives personal glimpses of Rosa Parks, E. D. Nixon, Martin Luther King, Jr., Fred Gray, and others among the boycott leaders
