This paper summarizes Sellers' autobiography about his life as an activist in the Civil Rights movement. The paper explains Sellers' point that his involvement in the movement led him to understand that civil rights were more than about just getting to eat in the same places as white people and really about creating fundamental and profound changes in American society that would bring African-Americans true equality.

From the Paper:

"Sellers demonstrates that many people in the Black community of Denmark were uncomfortable with his growing activism. His mother received critical remarks about him; the President of black, local, Vorhees College was fired when the students became too active for the taste of the Board of Trustees; and his determination to continue with his activist activities caused a major rift between his father, whom he idolized, and himself. He notes that young Black college students across the South had similar confrontations with their parents as the sit-in movement grew."
