Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

This collection refutes the impression that the civil rights movement began with the civil rights movement began with the momentous Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision and suggests that the movement originated in the 1930s and earlier, spurred by the Great Depression and World War II--events that would radically shape the course of politics in the South and the nation into the next century.

A valuable and timely volume . . . particularly welcome for the emphasis it places on the churches, on white women, and on returning black and white veterans, groups whose postwar role has been too long ignored.--Anthony J. Badger, author of Prosperity Road: The New Deal, Tobacco, and North Carolina and The New Deal: The Depression Years, 1933-1940.

Glenn Feldman is Associate Professor of Business in the Center for Labor Education and Research at The University of Alabama at Birmingham and author of Politics, Society, and the Klan in Alabama, 1915-1949. Patricia Sullivan is Associate Professor of History at the University of South Carolina and author of Days of Hope: Race and Democracy in the New Deal Era. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
