My Soul Is a Witness extends the examination of civil rights activities between 1954 and 1965 beyond the southern states to include the rest of the country. Although Martin Luther King, Jr., was a central towering figure of the era, this volume shifts the focus to the thousands of people, places, and events that ythe Civil Rights Movement encompassed. And while the movement began in the arena of education, My Soul Is a Winess covers events in the areas of employment, public accmodations, housing, voting rights, religion, entertainment, sports, and the military.
