Summary
When Freedom Would Triumph: The Civil Rights Struggle in Congress, 1954?1968 recalls the most significant and inspiring legislative battle of the twentieth century?the two decades of struggle in the halls of Congress that resulted in civil rights for the descendants of American slaves. Mann's comprehensive analysis shows how political leaders in Washington?Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, John F. Kennedy, and others?transformed the ardent passion for freedom?the protests, marches, and creative nonviolence of the civil rights movement?into concrete progress for justice. A story of heroism and cowardice, statesmanship and political calculation, vision and blindness, When Freedom Would Triumph, an abridged and revised version of Mann's The Walls of Jericho: Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, Richard Russell, and the Struggle for Civil Rights, is a captivating, thought-provoking reminder of the need for more effective government
