This nonviolent stuff'll get you killed : how guns made the civil rights movement possible by Charles E Cobb( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Visiting the parsonage of Martin Luther King, Jr. during the peak of the civil rights movement, the journalist William Worthy began to ease himself into an armchair, only to stop short. Sitting on the cushion was a loaded pistol. "Just for self-defense," King assured Worthy. It was not the only weapon that King kept for such a purpose; Glenn Smiley, a southern minister who advised King on the techniques of nonviolence during the Montgomery bus boycott, remembered King's home as "an arsenal." Living under constant death threats, King enlisted armed supporters to guard his home and family, and even applied for a conceal-and-carry permit. His application was denied--but it, like the rest of the evidence about King's gun ownership, points to a side of the civil rights movement that has long been ignored by history. In This Nonviolent Stuff'll Get You Killed, award-winning civil rights scholar Charles E. Cobb, Jr. reveals the fundamental but long-overlooked role that armed self-defense played in the golden era of the civil rights movement"--

This light of ours : activist photographers of the civil rights movement by Leslie G Kelen( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement is a paradigm-shifting publication that presents the Civil Rights Movement through the work of nine activist photographers - men and women who chose to document the national struggle against segregation and other forms within the movement. Unlike images produced by photojournalists, who covered breaking news events, these photographers lived within the movement - and documented its activities by focusing on the student activists and local people who together made it happen. The core of the book is a selection of 151 black-and-white photographers Bob Adelman, George Ballis, Bob Fitch, Bob Fletcher, Matt Herron, David Prince, Herbert Randall, Maria Varela, and Tamio Wakayama. Images are grouped around four movement themes and convey SNCC's organizing strategies, resolve in the face of violence, impact on local and national politics, and influence on the nation's consciousness. The photographs and texts of This Light of Ours reminds us that the movement was a battleground, that the battle was successfully fought by thousands of "ordinary" Americans amongst whom were the nation's courageous youth, and that the movement's moral vision and impact continue to shape our lives."--Jacket
Teach freedom : education for liberation in the African-American tradition( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This anthology is about those forms of education intended to help people think more critically about the social forces shaping their lives and think more confidently about their ability to react against those forces. Featuring articles by educator-activists, this collection explores the largely forgotten history of attempts by African Americans to use education as a tool of collective liberation. Together these contributions explore the variety of forms those attempts have taken, from the shadow of slavery to the contradictions of hip-hop." --Book Jacket

SNCC 50th Anniversary Conference by Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (U.S.)( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 19: Over the years, the popular media has had a troubled relationship with organizations like SNCC. Hollywood film director Phil Alden Robinson maintains that a big challenge to producing freedom movement films for theatrical distribution is the assumption that the films won't sell overseas. The entertainment values that drive the news limit the depiction of day-to-day grassroots organizing to dramatic protests. However, "media" is no longer defined as exclusively Hollywood, network television or mainstream print media. "Young people especially", says photographer Maria Varela, "are not just cultural consumers but culture-makers."

Frontline( Visual )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This program is a unique exploration of the true meaning of discrimination. It is the story of an Iowa teacher who one day, following the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, decided to try to make her third-grade class understand what discrimination means. She divided the class into blue-eyed and brown-eyed children. For two days, one group was given special treatment; the other group made to feel inferior. This daring exercise had a dramatic and lasting effect on these children as the program shows. The film records how the children reacted back in 1968 when they were eight, and also shows them sixteen years later as a class reunion discussing what that lesson has meant to them over the years. Finally, this film shows how this teacher's pioneering work in teaching the meaning of discrimination has been applied elsewhere in other schools and in sessions with prison guards and convicts"--1985 Peabody Awards entry form
