  • Epilogue What's Happened Since Black Like Me The experiment that led to writing Black Like Me was done at the very end of 1959, before the first "freedom rides" or any other manifestation of national concern about racial injustice.
  • With the beginning of the freedom rides, the sit-ins, the display of heroic courage and commitment on the part of many who engaged in these activities, and with the rallying around Martin Luther King's philosophy of nonviolent resistance, that feeling of despair began to change into hope.
