This Pulitzer Prize winning book examines the role that the media had on the modern Civil Rights movement In the late 40s and into the 50s little coverage in newsprint was given to the issues of African Americans in the southern United States The stories of beatings lynchings and mistreatment were detailed in segregationist newspapers printed for and sold to southern Black Americans As key figures like Martin Luther King Jr Thurgood Marshall Rosa Parks and Malcolm X began to gain national attention media sources picked up the stories In print and eventually in television and radio the Civil Rights movement garnered headline news and breaking stories The role of the media during this time should not be overlooked Indeed the media brought these issues to the forefront of the nation s mind and helped in the fight to bring about much needed legistlation such as the Voting Rights Act Gene Roberts and Hank Klibanoff recount the events of the civil rights struggle from Brown V BOE to Selma and beyond through the eyes of the journalists photographers and newscasters both black and white These were the people working what came to be known as the Race Beat Many put themselves in harm s way to get the stories that needed to be told to the nation and it is these stories that helped give a voice to civil rights issues in America If it hadn t been for the media the print media and television the civil rights movement would have been like a bird without wings a choir without a song John Lewis

This is another significant work on the Civil Rights era Its overriding theme is how the media newsprint and TV played an essential role in presenting to the general public the sordid racist state that existed in the Southern US and by exposing this helped to bring progress to ameliorate the conditions Without the media it is doubtful that the racial climate in the Southern US would have improved it certainly would have taken time John Lewis said that without the presence of the various news groups the civil rights workers felt they were struggling in isolation for instance there was no coverage when many civil rights workers were sent to Parchman Penitentiary in MississippiIt did take the media a long time to report this struggle There had always been Civil Rights protests starting with Frederick Douglas during the Civil War It was only during the mid fifties that the mainstream white media began to recognize the Civil Rights struggle Why it started only during that period is another uestion perhaps it was due to the rapid growth of media outlets during that era It may also be due to persistence of people in power like Eleanor Roosevelt The reporters following a principal similar to the physicist Heisenberg who states that the observer influences reaction were becoming and involved in the Civil Rights struggle As they observed the conflicts and many of these conflicts were vociferously rabid and bloody their reporting became less and less neutral They recognized the justice and the inherent morality of the Civil Rights workers They themselves were freuently assaulted by the white southerners They were seen as trouble makers on southern soil The reporting but so the images pictures and film exposed to the world what was occurring The bombings of churches the beatings of Civil Rights protesters in restaurants and during peaceful marches these made the front pages of major newspapers and the top story on the six o clock news of the major networks It also made it to the desks of the White House When The New York Times courtesy of Claude Sitton published front page news of African Americans attempting to register to vote in Mississippi who were set upon by police dogs or pistol whipped by law enforcement officials the White House was forced to take actionIn a very real sense the reporters many of them white southerners took up the crusade for justice They became convinced over time that the south had to changeNo matter how often one reads of accounts of Southern racism and brutality against their fellow country men it is always a shock to re read this hatred This book offers a new and fresh perspective from the reporting side
