On the Back Cover
During "Freedom Summer" 1964, white college students from the North traveled to Mississippi to help with voter registration, living with black families and taking orders from battle-tested "field secretaries" of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Their story - one of personal conflict, confrontational politics, communal living, interracial sex, and idealism put to the test of violent opposition - changed America forever. The Children Bob Moses Led blends fiction and fact to recreate the year between the "I-have-a-dream-we-shall-overcome" optimism of the March on Washington and the debacle of the Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City. The alternating voices of Bob Moses, the charismatic and enigmatic leader of the Mississippi Summer Project, and Tom Morton, a fictional white college student who has volunteered to teach in a Freedom School and to help register black voters, shape this vibrant novel and give insight into the private lives and public events that brought blacks and whites together and turned idealism into reality.
