This books points out that "...All are created equal." Thomas Jefferson wrote these words in our nation's Declaration of Independence. Yet for many years, these words did not apply to "all men" or all women. Many Americans were not treated with the same civil rights as others. The Civil Rights movement had roots with the abolitionists who worked to end slavery and the "Conductors" of the Underground Railroad. But many were working for civil rights even before the Emancipation Proclamation and the Thirteenth Amendment.
