Summer Book Chat: “Troublemakers: On the March for Civil Rights From Selma to Black Power” with author Gary Yerkey ‘66
July 6 @ 12:00 pm
This book tells the story — through the dual lens of the Selma-to-Montgomery voting rights march and the March Against Fear — of the strategic shift in the civil rights struggle of the 1960s from mobilizing mass demonstrations of nonviolent civil disobedience to engaging in a more confrontational approach designed to enable African Americans to “take power,” […] and to create “powerfully organized communities capable of sustaining political struggle.”
