Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971395330, Paperback)During the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, weary Black Americans became fed up with mistreatment and sub par living standards. Demanding equal rights and justice, the student sit-in movement in Greensboro, North Carolina, became a vital part of Blacks making strides to become equal.Hunger Pains in Our Heads will describe the pressures leading up to that fateful day, describe the people involved in the event, and the lasting impact after that day. Rev. Mansel Philip McCleave was in the midst of these events as he was a Horticulture and Agriculture instructor at North Carolina A&T College, where the students attended school. He describes in great detail the days leading up to the Woolworth Student Sit-In Movement, describing the hopes, fears, and pressures the people felt at that time. He attempts to analyze the measures that led to North Carolina, being the site of such a stand, the people who took the stand, the history behind the stand, and the results of the stand.Written with both passion and intellectual depth, Hunger Pains in Our Heads, is a book that will spark lively discussions, critical debates, and in depth analysis of those events in many classrooms, religious institutions, and political forums.
