Judson MacLaury, a retired historian for the US Department of Labor, traces the hard-won gains made by African American workers and the crucial role of the civil rights movement and its supporters in urging the federal government to action in To Advance Their Opportunities.
Originally published in 2008, this book is now available in a lightly edited and freshly redesigned reprint in 2014, just in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the monumental Civil Rights Act.
