The Origins of the Civil Rights Movement: Black Communities Organizing for Change

Aldon D. Morris

Publisher: Free PressFormat: Paperback

A “valuable, eye-opening work” (“The Boston Globe”) about the civil rights struggles of the 1950s and 1960s.On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Mrs. Rosa Parks, weary after a long day at work, refused to give up her bus seat to a white man...and ignited the explosion that was the civil rights movement in America. In this powerful saga, Morris tells the complete story behind the ten years that transformed America, tracing the essential role of the black community organizations that was the real power behind the civil rights movement. Drawing on interviews with more than fifty key leaders, original documents, and other moving firsthand material, he brings to life the people behind the scenes who led the fight to end segregation, providing a critical new understanding of the dynamics of social change.
