Robert L. Carter's history with the NAACP during its pivotal years (the 1940s through the 1960s) is at the center of this memoir, which offers a rare personal account of how the legal campaign in Brown was mounted. His recounting of the efforts by the NAACP's small legal staff to expose the pervasive nature of school segregation in the North in the aftermath of Brown brings this history to the forefront for the first time.
Carter's post-NAACP career has enabled him to reflect on the fight for racial justice from a variety of vantage points, most recently as a federal district judge in New York. He brings a fresh and critical perspective to bear on the long-term consequences of the civil rights movement, and the need for new and innovative approaches to the continuing struggle for racial justice in America.
