Sammy Younge JR, Forman
Even as a child, Sammy Younge, Jr. saw the struggle for equal rights as a personal challenge. A political science student at prestigious Tuskegee Institute, he became a leader in the student Civil Rights Movement. Demonstrations were touched off on January 4, 1966 when it became known that Sammy, age 21, had been shot and killed by a gas station attendant. James Forman knew Sammy personally, and tells the young martyr's story through interviews with family and friends. Condition is very good, however some scuffs and marks on the front cover.
