About the Author

Emilye Crosby is associate professor of history at the State University of New York-Geneseo


Engaging and accessible for nonspecialists and thought provoking for scholars, this well-written, feisty book offers cutting-edge historiography, tools for teachers, and insights for all of us. It is a must read for anyone interested in the freedom struggle and in a just, democratic society.

--Julian Bond "founding member of SNCC and former chair of the NAACP "

Provides the single most compelling interpretation of the African American freedom struggle in the South yet produced. National in scope, deep and concrete, empirical and analytical, clear and accessible, this collection clarifies virtually all the crucial scholarly debates while furnishing engaging examples for students and general readers. Crosby shows us a historic movement as deep as it is long, rooted in the black South, but speaking to the whole world.

--Timothy B. Tyson "author of Radio Free Dixie: Robert F. Williams and the Roots of Black Power "
Civil Rights History from the Ground Up contains a remarkable bounty of insights for teachers and advanced students of civil rights. Emilye Crosby has recruited 'the best and the brightest' for this phenomenal volume, and the result of that combination of talent is simply outstanding.--Komozi Woodard "A Nation within a Nation: Amiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones) and Black Power Politics "

This collection is essential for everyone interested in the past and present movement for social justice and human rights.

--Kenneth S. Jolly "Journal of American History "
