The civil rights movement and the struggle against Jim Crow4:15pm Sun 31 Mar
About this session
From sit-ins to urban rebellions, the movements for Civil Rights and Black Power saw explosive struggles that rocked the foundations of the American state and the racism which is it is built upon. This inspiring and radical period continues to be an important reference point for anti-racist activists today. With the emergence Black Lives Matter, there has been a renewed interest in the lessons from this history. This session will explore the development of these movements and the political debates which coloured this high point of anti-racist revolt in the United States.
