Reverend F. D. Reese's favorite subject to teach his students was freedom. But in Selma, Alabama, unfair tests and police officers' swinging billy clubs kept African Americans from voting. Reverend Reese knew something had to change, so he asked his fellow teachers to do something dangerous—something that might lead to beatings and prison time. He asked them to march. The teachers packed what they'd need in jail and began a silent, steady march toward the marble steps of the county courthouse. This gripping exploration of the little-known Teachers' March of 1965 is brought to life through the authors' riveting storytelling and in-depth interviews with Selma foot soldiers.
