The Civil Rights movement that emerged in the United States after World War II was a reaction against centuries of racial discrimination. In this sweeping history of the Civil Rights movement in Atlanta - the South's largest and most economically important city - from the 1940s through 1980,Tomiko Brown-Nagin shows that the movement featured a vast array of activists and many sophisticated approaches to activism. Long before "black power" emerged and gave black dissent from the mainstream civil rights agenda a new name, African Americans in Atlanta debated the meaning of equality andthe steps necessary to obtain social and economic justice.This groundbreaking book uncovers the activism of visionaries - both well-known legal figures and unsung citizens - from across the ideological spectrum who sought something different from, or more complicated than, "integration." Local activists often played leading roles in carrying out theintegrationist agenda of the NAACP, but some also pursued goals that differed markedly from those of the venerable civil rights organization. Brown-Nagin discusses debates over politics, housing, public accommodations, and schools. She documents how the bruising battle over school desegregation inthe 1970s, which featured opposing camps of African Americans, had its roots in the years before Brown v. Board of Education.Exploring the complex interplay between the local and national, between lawyers and communities, between elites and grassroots, and between middle-class and working-class African Americans,Courage to Dissent tells gripping stories about the long struggle for equality that speak to the nation'scurrent urban crisis. This remarkable book will transform our understanding of the Civil Rights era.… (mer)
