Summary

No other book about the civil rights movement captures the drama and impact of the black struggle for equality better than Debating the Civil Rights Movement, 1945-1968. Two of the most respected scholars of African-American history, Steven F. Lawson and Charles Payne, examine the individuals who made the movement a success, both at the highest level of government and in the grassroots trenches. Designed specifically for college and university courses in American history, this is the best introduction available to the glory and agony of these turbulent times. Carefully chosen primary documents augment each essay giving students the opportunity to interpret the historical record themselves and engage in meaningful discussion. In this revised and updated edition, Lawson and Payne have included additional analysis on the legacy of Martin Luther King and added important new documents.

Special Features

  • The contrasting perspectives of the essays illustrate how our understanding of the people and events of history depends considerably on the way that individual historians interpret them. These essays offer students the opportunity to engage in intelligent conversations about how we study and understand the past.
  • New discussion questions challenge students to evaluate primary sources and engage in their own debates on important historical issues.
  • The book brings together a variety of primary sources including speeches, oral histories, images, government reports and letters that allow students to interpret historical documents and evaluate their importance in the context of the greater Civil Rights Movement.
