In their new biographies, Peniel E. Joseph (The Sword and the Shield) and Cynthia Orozco (Agent of Change) share illuminating portraits of leaders who altered the course of the Civil Rights Movement both in Texas and nationwide—a movement captured in part in photos collected by Don Carleton (Struggle of Justice: Four Decades of Civil Rights Photography), the executive director of the Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin.
