This review is from: Heinemann Advanced History: Civil Rights in the USA 1863-1980 (Paperback)
I recently wrote a 3500 word course essay on the Civil Rights Movement, and this was by far and away my most useful resource, and a very good go-to book for facts.
A little thin on details sometimes, so if you're using it for more serious writings supplement it with books like Taylor Branch's mammoth Parting The Waters. Still, there is a really great, concise narrative here.
