Published May 2023.
The Activism of Southern Black Educators from Reconstruction through the Civil Rights Era
Edited by Derrick P. Alridge, Jon N. Hale, and Tondra L. Loder-Jackson
By illuminating teachers’ activism during the long civil rights movement, the editors and contributors connect the past with the present, contextualizing teachers’ [in large part women] long-standing role as advocates for social justice. The contributors broaden our conceptions of what it meant to actively take part in or contribute to the civil rights movement.
