Rev James D. McManus
While there are many nationally recognized heroes of the Civil Rights Movement, little is known of the unheralded rural and small town activists. J.D. McManus was one such activist who struggled to make civil rights a reality in his corner of the nation. His amazing story is told in this book by Quaker author Paul Wahrhaftig and offers new insights into the realities of organizing for and implementing civil rights in the rural and small town South.
