Summary
  • Groundwork illuminates local civil rights activity in the United States, a fundamental component of the larger Civil Rights and Black Power Movements that contributed greatly to their national successes. Individually, the essays offer new insights about the Black Freedom Movement: a militant black youth organization in Milwaukee was led by a white Catholic priest; a group of middle-class, professional black women spearheaded Jackson, Mississippi's movement for racial justice and made possible the continuation of the Freedom Rides; and despite resistance from national headquarters, the Brooklyn chapter of the Congress of Racial Equality called for a dramatic act of civil disobedience at the 1964 World's Fair in New York
  • No previous volume has enabled readers to examine several different local movements together, and in so doing, Groundwork forges a far more comprehensive vision of the Black Freedom Movement
