Rethinking the Black Freedom Movement: In The Box: Part 2 (University of Illinois)

In the first lecture, Abdul Alkalimat looked at Civil Rights organizations which mobilized people from every part of black society. Women, lawyers, social workers, militants and priests all took part. Now Alkalimat looks at the activities of activists, and the backlash they faced. The 1960s was a war against racist terror, during which non-violent protestors faced murder, bombing, shooting and lynching. What was this mobilization? Who led it? How was unity maintained? What was the response? Abdul Alkalimat answers these and other questions by talking about the critical years of the 1960s in the Civil Rights movement.
