The essential moments of the Civil Rights Movement are introduced and set in historical context by the author of the magisterial America in the King Years trilogy—Parting the Waters; Pillar of Fire; and At Canaan’s Edge.

Taylor Branch’s three-volume history endures as a masterpiece of storytelling on American race, violence and democracy.
