"So real to someone who witnessed it that I had to put this volume down and catch my breath." -Andrew Sullivan, The New York Times Book Review

"A remarkably written and highly relevant record of what angry, invested citizens can come together to achieve, and a moving and instructive testament to one community's refusal-in the face of ignorance, hatred and death-to be silenced or to give up." -Chicago Tribune
