Summary: "In chronicling Hank's rise to stardom, Ribowsky also explores all those cautionary tales that have, until now, remained secreted beneath the grooves of his records. Drawing from new interviews, Ribowsky connects those seemingly eternal afternoons and nights spent choked in booze and desperation to the music that Williams would create, [allowing] us to witness the man behind the tipped cowboy hat--the charismatic troubadour who hid the wounds of his domestic quarrels, relied on painkillers to get through the day, and was always teetering on the edge of tragedy, even when he saw the light"--Amazon.com.

Summary: Mississippi. 1966. On a hot June afternoon an African American man named James Meredith set out to walk through his home state of Mississippi, intending to fight racism and fear with his feet. He walked to make a statement. But two days into his journey, Meredith was shot and wounded in a roadside attack. Within twenty-four hours, Martin Luther King, Jr., Stokely Carmichael, and other civil rights leaders had taken up Meredith's cause, determined to overcome this violent act and complete Meredith's walk. What started as one man's mission became the March Against Fear.
