It depicts student protests related to reduced Black student enrollment, decreased hiring of African Americans as staff members, and the lack of a Black Studies curriculum. Written by the Swarthmore students, the book also includes autobiographical chapters, providing a unique cross-sectional view into the lives of young people during the Civil Rights era.
