Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 141657123X, Mass Market Paperback)

When University of Michigan sophomore Celeste Tyree travels to Mississippi to volunteer with the Civil Rights movement, she's assigned to help register voters in the already infamous town of Pineyville. While Celeste befriends several members of the community, there are also those who are threatened by her and the change she represents. Finding inner strength as she helps lift the veil of oppression, Celeste prepares her adult students for their showdown with the county registrar while struggling herself with loneliness, a worried father in Detroit, and her burgeoning feelings for Ed Jolivette, a young man also in Mississippi for the summer.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:30 -0400)

A young, privileged black woman from Detroit, Celeste has begun to realize she knows as little about her race as her white ex-boyfriend. So she heads to the South "to shore up her own Negro-ness" by volunteering during the Freedom Summer.
