are devoting their summer reading and year-long common reading to the classic works of the movement -- including Charles Euchners Nobody Turn Me Around: A Peoples History of the 1963 March on Washington (Beacon Press).The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom -- highlighted by Martin Luther Kings I Have a Dream oration -- gave the civil rights movement the common ground it needed to move forward.We Stood On a Height offers oral histories of dozens of the people to participated and even helped plan this historic event, when upwards of 400,000 people converged on the National Mall to petition the nation for the basic rights of black citizens.In the spirit of Studs Terkel, We Stood on a Height gives the participants the chance to describe this historic day in their own words.Author Charles Euchner conducted more than 120 interviews for Nobody Turn Me Around.

Many compelling stories did not make it into his final version. We Stood on a Height presents some of those lost interviews.Ideal for high school and college classes, civil rights and other activist organizations, and just curious citizens, We Stood on a height offers compelling glimpses into the everyday heroes who transformed America -- and the world, from Eastern Europe to China to South Africa, and more recently the Middle East -- with the civil rights movement.
