ISBN: 9780820357034 Géneros: Sinópsis: The 1954 Brown v Board of Education ruling was a watershed event in the fight against racial segregation in the United States The recent fiftieth anniversary of Brown prompted a surge of tributes books television and radio specials conferences and speeches At the same time says James C Cobb it revealed a growing trend of dismissiveness and negativity toward Brown and other accomplishments of the civil rights movement Writing as both a lauded historian and a white southerner from the last generation to grow up under southern apartheid Cobb responds to what he sees as distortions of Brown39s legacy and their implied disservice to those whom it inspired and empoweredCobb begins by looking at how our historical understanding of segregation has evolved since the Brown decision In particular he targets the tenacious misconception that racial discrimination was at odds with economic modernizationand so would have faded out on its own under market pressures He then looks at the argument that Brown energized white resistance more than it fomented civil rights progress This position overstates the pace and extent of racial change in the South prior to Brown Cobb says while it understates Brown39s role in catalyzing and legitimizing subsequent black protestFinally Cobb suggests that the Brown decree and the civil rights movement accomplished not only more than certain critics have acknowledged but also more than the hard statistics of black progress can reveal The destruction of Jim Crow with its denial of belonging allowed African Americans to embrace their identity as southerners in ways that freed them to explore links between their southernness and their blackness This is an important and timely reminder of what the Brown court and the activists who took the spirit of its ruling into the streets were up against both historically and contemporaneously
