Event Detail

Unruly Politics: Prof Leslie Brown

Despite the tendency to portray black activism as an expression of racial unity, not every African American supported every movement for change, or even agreed with a given strategy, tactic, agenda, or goal. Nonetheless, friction generated the energy necessary to deploy multiple forms of protest and resistance. This talk describes how African Americans worked together and separately to forge what we call the civil rights movement.
