This is the first-person account of Proudfoot, who participated in the 1960 sit-in in Knoxville, Tennessee. This diary comments with modesty, directness, and a deep sense of Christian responsibility on the individuals, the organizations, and the races involved and upon social justice in general. It is a book of great authority, in the New Testament sense of that word.

Originally published in 1962.
