Miles to Go for Freedom: Segregation & Civil Rights in the Jim Crow Years

Told through unforgettable first-person accounts, photographs, and other primary sources, and published in association with the Library of Congress, this book is an overview of racial segregation and early civil rights efforts in the United States from the 1890s to 1954, a period known as the Jim Crow years. Multiple perspectives are examined as the book looks at the impact of legal segregation and discrimination on the day-to-day life of black and white Americans across the country. Osborne expertly guides readers through this turbulent time and enables them to better understand the struggles, the triumphs, and the courage it took to set things right.
