The first comprehensive history of the civil rights movement in Georgia This sweeping history of the civil rights movement in the South's largest state tells of many Georgias. Beyond Atlanta draws on interviews with almost two hundred people - black and white - who worked for, or actively resisted, the freedom movement. Among the topics Stephen Tuck covers are the absence of consistent support from the movement's national leadership and the frustration and innovation it alternately inspired at the local level. In addition, Tuck reveals friction, along urban-rural and poor-prosperous lines, about movement goals and tactics, and he highlights the often unheralded roles played by African American women, veterans, masons, unions, neighbourhood clubs, and local NAACP branches.
