About the Book

For decades the most racially repressive state in the nation fought bitterly and violently to maintain white supremacy. In Local People: The Struggle for Civil Rights in Mississippi, John Dittmer traces the monumental battle waged by civil rights organizations and by local people, particularly courageous members of the black communities who were willing to put their lives on the line to establish basic human rights for all citizens of the state.
