Product Description

Review

"Ezra's (Muhummad Ali: The Making of an Icon) contribution to ABC-CLIO's "Perspectives in American Social History" series is a lucid, balanced examination of the lasting effects of the civil rights movement. ...Bottom line: Any single-volume examination of the civil rights movement can at best be a primer on this era of reform or serve as a gateway to further research. Ezra's work shines in both these areas. All libraries should own this title." -

Library Journal, Starred Review

"This book is a useful addition to any library that has a collection on African American history and the civil rights movement." -

ARBAonline

."..a useful reference work that deserves to be read by undergraduate and graduate students, as well as general readership...public and academic libraries would enhance their reference collections by acquiring this book." -

H-Net Book Review

"The value of [this title] is the accessibility for student researchers to pull out chapters pertaining to their area of study. Recommended." -

Library Media Connection

"Highly recommended for high school, community and undergraduate colleges, and public libraries." -

Catholic Library World

"For high school and undergraduate college courses, this social history documents the work of people involved in the civil rights movement, expanding the definition of the movement to include events before and after the era of Martin Luther King, Jr., the work of everyday people, black nationalism, and struggles outside the South. The eight essays take into account the three methods of defining the civil rights movement (in terms of the King years, as a longer civil rights movement, and through the civil rights/black power dichotomy), and cover the contributions of early pioneers, student activists, clergy, southern civil rights organizations, the NAACP and CORE (the Congress of Racial Equality), black nationalists, the Black Panther Party, and women. Primary source documents, such as Supreme Court documents and a speech by Malcolm X,

and short biographical sketches, are included. Essays are by US scholars of black studies, history, American multicultural studies, and English." -

"The Civil Rights Movement: People and Perspectives" would be a meaningful addition to high school, undergraduate, and public library collections and is highly recommended." -
