Now available in paperback.

Read the prologue from Nobody Turn Me Around, a dramatic account of the 1963 March on Washington—the demonstration that changed America (http://www.beacon.org/productdetails.cfm?SKU=0155).

“As was true of the historic March on Washington in 1963, so it is true of Charles Euchner's riveting new chronicle of the event: The massive human train of proud and determined Americans—ordinary, salt-of-the-earth citizens— is the heart and soul of this dramatic and inspiring story. Even more than the planners, the leaders and the big-name personalities, it was the tens of thousands who dropped everything for a peaceable assembly at the Lincoln Memorial that made this happening significant and memorable. Now, more than forty-five years later, those same people stride through Euchner's narrative as if it were a march in progress. The stars are here too, of course—Martin Luther King, Bayard Rustin, A. Philip Randolph, Roy Wilkins, John Lewis and many more—but the pages crackle and vibrate with the voices of unsung heroes who drove, flew, rode buses and trains, hitchhiked, even walked long distances to be there in the Great Emancipator's stone shadow as Dr. King spun out his immortal ‘Dream.’” —John Egerton, author of Speak Now Against the Day: The Generation Before the Civil Rights Movement in the South

Now on sale, the paperback edition of Nobody Turn Me Around. On August 28, 1963, over 250,000 held the greatest civil rights demonstration ever. Building on countless interviews, archives, FBI files, and private recordings, this hour-by-hour account offers intimate glimpses into the lives of those key players and ordinary people who converged on the National Mall to fight for civil rights.
