DEMING, Barbara. Prison Notes.
(New York, NY): Grossman Publishers, 1966. First edition. Octavo. 185 pages (plus 20-page photo-insert). “This is the very personal account of the nonviolent struggle waged for two months with the authorities of Albany, Georgia by the members of an integrated cross-country peace walk-jailed when they tried to walk through the town’s white business district, jailed again when they tried a second time. The author, who was one of the walkers, recalls how, from within the jail – most of them fasting – they succeeded finally in altering the city’s rigid stand, and how it felt to endure in their cramped and filthy cages until they did succeed.” Illustrated with 33 black and white reproductions of photographs of the peace walk, the arrest of its members, and their time in jail. A very near fine copy in dust jacket. A very nice copy.
