This Bright Light of Ours offers a focused insider’s view of the community-based activism at the heart of the civil rights movement. I was one of the teenage white kids who answered the call to come to the south to join the Black Freedom Fight in 1965. Four decades later, I returned to rediscover my friends and co-workers in rural Wilcox County, Alabama. My book details through first-person accounts the contributions of ordinary people who formed the nonviolent army that won the fight for voting rights.
