"In the nineteen fifties and early sixties, Birmingham, Alabama, became known as Bombingham. At the center of this violent time in the fight for civil rights, and standing at opposite ends, were Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Eugene "Bull' Connor. From his pulpit, Shuttlesworth agitated for racial equality, while Commissioner Connor fought for the status quo. Relying on court documents, police and FBI reports, newspapers, interviews, and photographs, author Larry Dane Brimner first covers each man's life and then brings them together to show how their confrontation brought about significant change to the southern city" --Publisher.

Shuttlesworth—a Black minister—was committed to ending segregation in Birmingham, Alabama. Connor—the white Commissioner of Public Safety—was equally committed to maintaining it. The struggle was intense and violent, but Connor’s opposition may have brought civil rights sooner. Illus. with archival photographs.
