Anne Moody brings the rural South to light with her famous autobiography , Coming of Age in Mississippi.  This account of life for a poor black family provides a brutal and sobering look at the Civil Rights movement. This book strips away the illusion that the inequality being overcome is just between "whites" and "blacks," but is also between sexes, ages, and ideals. A bitter and difficult story, but very important to read and question.
