There is a wonderful compilation of quotes from major civil rights leaders about Bevel included in the beginning of the book. The book starts off with excerpts from various books that creates a story of how the right-to-vote was achieved due to the initiation, development and work of James Bevel. The book includes writing from Bevel on such things as precinct council development, government and nonviolence.
The original proposal written by Bevel is included in the book. In addition, historical excerpts from famous and not so famous statesman are included at the top of each page affirming the value of the right to vote.
