Defying Dixie PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Defying Dixie free pdf The civil rights movement of 1950s and 1960s America was the tip of an iceberg- the legal and political remnant of a broad, raucous, deeply American movement for social justice that flourished from the 1920s. In a dramatic narrative, "Defying Dixie" shows how the movement unfolded against national and global developments, gaining focus and arriving at a narrow but effective legal strategy for securing desegregation and political rights. Little-known heroes abound in a book that will recast our understanding of the most important social movement in twentieth-century America.
