Civil Rights and the March Against Fear

Thursday, February 06, 2014

Aram Goudsouzian tells the story of one of the central dramas of the civil rights era—the “March Against Fear” in Mississippi and the shooting of the leader of the march, James Meredith. Goudsouzian's book Down to the Crossroads: Civil Rights, Black Power, and the Meredith March Against Fear reveals the legacy of an event that would both integrate African Americans into the political system and inspire bolder protests against them.

I hope people will recognize how different this struggle was and stop the comparison to Gay rights.
