  1. This was one of the few books that have taken me a long while to finish I could only read so much at once before I had to stop and digest what I read Definitely not one to just sit down and read.That being said, I learned so much new information about the struggle for equality Looking at and comparing my knowledge before and after reading this book, I knew pretty much only the basics, which is sad Too much of this is neglected in the education of America honestly, any thing past World War II see [...]


  2. THE FIGHT BACK FROM SLAVERY The focus of Adam Faircloughs book, as is evident from the title Better Day Coming , is on black efforts at fighting for full citizenship within American society Things had become extremely bleak for them after the radical Republicans it was not an oxymoron in the 1860 s and 70 s efforts at Reconstruction were defeated, and blacks lost their vote and representatives, land and legal equality Any attempts at seeking re dress were brutally put down by Southern Democrats [...]


  3. Just to put this review in context I m white, raised in a mostly white upper middle class suburb of a large Midwestern city, went to mostly white public schools, and didn t have any black friends until college.This book made me want to vomit pretty early on Remember, this books begins after slavery Like, 30 years after And the treatment that African Americans were subjected to continued for almost a century, and still continues today in many forms, even if not to the same degree or as frequently [...]


  4. This book really reminded me of the forgotten struggle that our forefathers mothers had 2 endure just 2 get the rights that most of us take for granted 2day Well written engagingly detailed this read is a must for anyone who wants 2 know about the race divide that inspired true human spirit I like a few before me found myself reading every page TWICE just so I could fully digest absorb all of what I was reading It s hard 2 believe these events all took place as recent as 12 decades ago just hig [...]


  5. This was a great book extremely well researched, honest and informative I enjoyed it until the last chapter where I feel the time period of 1970 2000 really did not receive the same extensive research as the previous time periods The author did a great job maintaining objectivity with DuBouis and Washington, the SCLC and the NAACP, as well as SNCC and black power however, the last time period did not receive this same objectivity or research It seemed rushed and heavily reliant on media headline [...]


  6. So far, this book has been very interesting It chronologically goes in depth about the struggles African Americans have faced and continue to face High school lessons have made it seem as though Reconstruction bettered the lives of African Americans, but in this book we learn that the struggle for equality wasn t and still isn t quite so easy.


  7. It takes an Englishman to offer a terrific, easy to read overview of U.S Civil Rights history since Reconstruction What makes this book very good is the thread of connections, rivalries, comparisons, etc from era to era Academics might complain how it s heavy on secondary sources, but in this case, that s good news for the general reader.


  8. Chronological account of civil rights in America Anyone who has decided to give a shit has much to gain from this book


  9. Quite an eye opening read I never understood how stratified our society was is Progress has certainly been made, but it saddens me how far we still need to go.


  10. I m all for equal rights, but this book leans too far left It refers to republicans as hacks out for themselves, portraying them as evil and liberals as saints It also has a pro communist flavor.


  11. I mean, it s a text book Interesting though, provides the facts for events as they happened, and I learned a lot.
