A stone of hope : prophetic religion and the death of Jim Crow

Author: David L Chappell
Publisher: Chapel Hill : University of North Carolina Press, ©2004.
Edition/Format:   Print book : State or province government publication : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The civil rights movement was arguably the most successful social movement in American history. In a provocative new assessment of its success, David Chappell argues that the story of civil rights is not a story of the ultimate triumph of liberal ideas after decades of gradual progress. Rather, it is a story of the power of religious tradition.
