The Civil Rights Movement is a collection of the best scholarship on one of America's most important social movements.

Editor Jack Davis expands the usual historical boundaries of the Civil Rights Movement as he follows it from pre-World War II activism to the affirmative action initiatives begun in the 1960s.

These essays reveal the grassroots character of the movement by exploring its continuity, local nature, and decentralized and diverse leadership.

Through this broader scope, students learn about women's activism, white liberals and moderates, local initiatives, environmental racism, and black political empowerment.Twelve essays are arranged chronologically and topically, each with supporting primary documents, a detailed timeline, and further reading lists.

This collection provides an ideal source for teaching Civil Rights with a fresh perspective.
