The struggles of black southerners during the early 1960s aroused concerned people across America to leave the relative comfort and safety of their homes and risk their lives in the struggle for freedom. Northerners Danny Lyon and Jon Daniels ventured southward in the early 1960s as outsiders, not as agitators. They joined a movement originated and led by African Americans seeking their own emancipation. Lyon survived, Daniels perished. Both were transformed. These two books document their stories.
