Civil Rights Movement ~ A Quilted Event

Tim Tyson, author of Blood Done Sign My Name, on the Civil Rights Movement:

"In fact, the movement was like a quilt—it was a work of many hands, a blanket of many patches, brought together just as quilts are often brought together, by neighbors and friends and family working together among the people they know. It would be misleading to think of one individual as having had the most impact. "
