Résumé :

"Anniston, Alabama, is a small industrial city between Birmingham and Atlanta. In 1961, the city's potential for race-related violence was graphically revealed when the Ku Klux Klan firebombed a Freedom Riders bus. In response to that incident a few black and white leaders in Anniston took a progressive view that desegregation was inevitable and that it was better to unite the community than to divide it. To that end, the city created a biracial Human Relations Coucil which set about to quietly dismantle Jim Crow segregation laws and customs. This was such a novel notion in George Wallace's Alabama that President Kennedy phoned with congratulations.

The Council did not prevent all disorder in Anniston - there was one death and the usual threats, crossburnings, and a widely publicized beating of two black ministers - yet Anniston was spared much of the civil rights bitterness that raged in other places in the turbulent mid-sixties."--BOOK JACKET.
