Abstract:

After decades of scholarship on the civil rights movement at the local level, insights of bottom-up movement history remain essentially invisible in the accepted narrative of the movement and peripheral to debates on how to research, document, and teach about the movement. This collection of original works refocuses attention on this bottom-up approach and compels a rethinking of what and who we think are central to movement history.
