Groundwork local black freedom movements in America ( )

Want to start a revolution? : radical women in the Black freedom struggle ( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From Rosa Parks and Esther Cooper Jackson, to Shirley Graham DuBois and Assata Shakur, a host of women demonstrated a lifelong commitment to radical change, embracing multiple roles to sustain the movement of black freedom struggle. They were founding numerous groups and mentoring younger activists, helping to create the groundwork and continuity for the movement by operating as local organizers. They were international mobilizers, and charismatic leaders, like Vicki Garvin, a Brooklyn-born activist became a leader of the National Negro Labor Council and Shirley Chisholm, who became the first black Congresswoman
Freedom North : Black freedom struggles outside the South, 1940-1980 by Jeanne Theoharis ( Book )
9 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The civil rights movement occupies a prominent place in popular thinking and scholarly work on post-1945 US history. Yet the dominant narrative of the movement remains that of a nonviolent movement born in the South during the 1950s that emerged triumphant in the early 1960s, only to be derailed by the twin forces of black power and white backlash when it sought to move outside the South after 1965. African American protest and political movements outside the South appear as ancillary and subsequent to the "real" movement in the South, despite the fact that black activism existed in the North, Midwest, and West in the 1940s, and persisted well into the 1970s. This book brings together new scholarship on black social movements outside the South to rethink the civil rights narrative and the place of race in recent history. Each chapter focuses on a different location and movement outside the South, revealing distinctive forms of US racism according to place, the varieties of tactics that community members used to attack these inequalities, and the prevalence of integrationist and nationalist thinking between the 1940s and the 1970s
The Black power movement ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The collection of materials reproduced in this microfilm edition documents Baraka's odyssey from the Black Arts movement to Black Power and beyond, offering an important inside view of the dynamics of the mass movements for black liberation in the late twentieth century. The collection covers Baraka's career from his involvement in the Black Arts movement in the mid-1960's through Baraka's nationalist and Marxist periods. The collection consists of rare works of poetry, organizational records, print publications, over one hundred articles, poems, plays, or speeches by Baraka, a small amount of personal correspondence, and oral history. The documents span from 1960 to 1988, and are arranged into sixteen series." -- p. x,xi
Want to Start a Revolution? Radical Women in the Black Freedom Struggle by Dayo F Gore ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story of the black freedom struggle in America has been overwhelmingly male-centric, starring leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Huey Newton. With few exceptions, black women have been perceived as supporting actresses; as behind-the-scenes or peripheral activists, or rank and file party members. But what about Vicki Garvin, a Brooklyn-born activist who became a leader of the National Negro Labor Council and guide to Malcolm X on his travels through Africa? What about Shirley Chisholm, the first black Congresswoman?. From Rosa Parks and Esther Cooper Jackson, to Shirley G
Groundwork Local Black Freedom Movements in America by Jeanne Theoharis ( )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the last several years, the traditional narrative of the civil rights movement as largely a southern phenomenon, organized primarily by male leaders, that roughly began with the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and ended with the Voting Rights Act of 1965, has been complicated by studies that root the movement in smaller communities across the country. These local movements had varying agendas and organizational development, geared to the particular circumstances, resources, and regions in which they operated. Local civil rights activists frequently worked in tandem with the national civil rig
