As a college student in 1960, Patricia Stephens Due once spent 49 days in jail rather than pay a fine resulting from a sit-in at a whites-only Woolworth lunch counter in Tallahassee, Florida. The incident has been forgotten by most history books, but Due says that the civil rights movement of the '60s was propelled by ordinary people like those who staged that sit-in. Her new book tells the stories of some of those ordinary folks. Due's daughter, novelist Tananarive Due, is co-author.
