history: the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in the spring of 1965, led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.? And why did a few white students from a small liberal arts college in the North decide to head south to join the cause, even when others were saying it was none of their business?

This book answers those questions and more through the eyes of one of the students who put his beliefs to the test and traveled south to fight for the rights of his fellow Americans, despite the risks. It is also the story of a college caught in the crosshairs of history, and of a student journey that, in some small way, would help change America.
