While touching on the general social, political, and economic climate in which the NAACP acted, Mark V. Tushnet emphasizes the internal workings of the organization as revealed in its own documents. He argues that the dedication and political and legal skills of staff members such as Walter White, Charles Hamilton Houston, and Thurgood Marshall were responsible for the ultimate success of public interest law. This edition contains a new epilogue by the author that addresses general questions of litigation strategy, the contested question of whether the Brown decision mattered, and the legacy of Brown through the Burger and Rehnquist courts."--Résumé de l'éditeur+-+582693253515606ocn060523578book20050.25Evers, Medgar WileyThe autobiography of Medgar Evers : a hero's life and legacy revealed through his writings, letters, and speechesHistoryBiographyThe American civil rights movement of the 1950s, and 1960s was spurred by innumerable heros who earned small triumphs in the face of epic intolerance and terror.

Berg reveals the group's eminently political character as he assesses both its historical achievements and its failures. He suggests that while the NAACP did make significant gains in furthering the progress of America's black citizens at the grassroots level, its national agenda should not be discounted. Berg challenges criticisms of recent years that the NAACP's goals and methods were half-hearted, ineffective, and irrelevant and reveals a resourceful, dynamic, and politically astute organization that has done much to open up the electoral process to greater black participation."--BOOK JACKET+-+478375863513675ocn652319047file20050.47Bernstein, PatriciaThe first Waco Horror the lynching of Jesse Washington and the rise of the NAACPHistory"In 1916, in front of a crowd of ten to fifteen thousand cheering spectators, seventeen-year-old Jesse Washington, a retarded black boy, was publicly tortured, lynched, and burned on the town square of Waco, Texas. He had been accused and convicted in a kangaroo court of the rape and murder of a white woman. The city's mayor and police chief watched Washington's torture and murder and did nothing. Nearby, a professional photographer took pictures to sell as mementos of that day." "Drawing on extensive research in the national files of the NAACP, local newspapers and archives, and interviews with the descendants of participants in the events of that day, author Patricia Bernstein has reconstructed the details of not only the crime but also its aftermath. She has charted the ways the story affected the development of the NAACP and especially the eventual success of its antilynching campaign. And she has asked the hard questions of how participating in such violence affected the lives of the mob leaders, the city officials who stood by passively, and the community that found itself capable of such abject behavior."--BOOK JACKET+-+999099030612903ocn002073784book19730.35Kellogg, Charles FlintNAACP ; a history of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People; volume I 1909-1920History12845ocn001175407book19590.56Vose, Clement ECaucasians only: the Supreme Court, the NAACP, and the restrictive covenant cases12703ocn056723440file20010.33Hughes, LangstonFight for freedom and other writings on civil rightsHistoryAnnotation+-+062867173512354ocn560325063com19990.47Wilson, Sondra KIn search of democracy the NAACP writings of James Weldon Johnson, Walter White, and Roy Wilkins (1920-1977)HistoryArchivesSources"The NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. Founded in 1909, it's progressive and ambitious agenda has challenged white supremacy, helped to defeat legal segregation, and sparked some of the most significant equal rights legislation of the twentieth century. In this engrossing collection of editorials, petitions, reports and speeches, archivist Sondra Kathryn Wilson delineates fifty-seven years of the NAACP's program under the successive direction of James Weldon Johnson, Walter White, and Roy Wilkins. By gathering the public writings of these heroic figures, she has created a narrative that spans more than half a century of racial conflict and civil rights history."--BOOK JACKET+-+K88166046511346ocn085829318book20070.56Goluboff, Risa LaurenThe lost promise of civil rightsHistory"In this groundbreaking book, Risa L. Goluboff offers a new account of the history of American civil rights law. The Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education has long dominated that history. Since 1954, generations of judges, lawyers, and ordinary people have viewed civil rights as a project of breaking down formal legal barriers to integration, especially in the context of public education. Goluboff recovers a world before Brown, a world in which civil rights was legally, conceptually, and constitutionally up for grabs. Then, the petitions of black agricultural workers in the American South and industrial workers across the nation called for a civil rights law that would redress economic as well as legal inequalities. Lawyers in the new Civil Rights Section of the Department of Justice and in the NAACP took the workers' cases and viewed them as crucial to attacking Jim Crow. By the time NAACP lawyers set out on the path to Brown, however, they had eliminated workers' economic concerns from their litigation agenda. When the lawyers succeeded in Brown, they simultaneously marginalized the host of other harms-economic inequality chief among them-that afflicted the majority of African Americans during the mid-twentieth century. By uncovering the lost challenges workers and their lawyers launched against Jim Crow in the 1940s, Goluboff shows how Brown only partially fulfilled the promise of civil rights."--Jacket+-+101975921511084ocn427511203file20070.53Sartain, LeeInvisible activists women of the Louisiana NAACP and the struggle for civil rights, 1915-1945HistoryBehind the historical accounts of the great men of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People lies the almost forgotten story of the black women who not only participated in the organization but actually helped it thrive in the early twentieth-century South. In Invisible Activists, Lee Sartain examines attitudes toward gender, class, and citizenship of African American activists in Louisiana and women's roles in the campaign for civil rights in the state.

Nonetheless, Evers consistently investigated the rapes, murders, beatings, and lynchings of black Mississippians and reported them to a national audience, all the while organizing economic boycotts, sit-ins, and street protests in Jackson as the NAACP's first full-time Mississippi field secretary. He organized and participated in voting drives and nonviolent direct-action protests, joined lawsuits to overturn school segregation, and devoted himself to a career that cost him his life. This biography of a lesser-known but seminal civil rights leader draws on personal interviews from Evers's widow, his remaining siblings, friends, schoolmates, and fellow activists to elucidate Evers as an individual, leader, husband, brother, and father. His story is a testament to the important role that grassroots activism played in exacting social change.--From publisher description+-+0824372006+-+1270518796+-+1270518796Fri Mar 21 15:34:33 EDT 2014batch125890
