About this product
- DescriptionEcomic inequalities have been perhaps the most enduring problem facing African Americans since the civil rights movement, despite the attention they have received from activists. Although the civil rights movement dealt successfully with injustices like disenfranchisement and segregated public accommodations, ecomic disparities between blacks and whites remain sharp, and the wealth gap between the two groups has widened in the twenty-first century. The Ecomic Civil Rights Movement is a collection of thirteen original essays that analyze the significance of ecomic power to the black freedom struggle by exploring how African Americans fought for increased ecomic automy in an attempt to improve the quality of their lives. It covers a wide range of campaigns ranging from the World War II era through the civil rights and black power movements and beyond. The unfinished business of the civil rights movement primarily is ecomic. This book turns backward toward history to examine the ways African Americans have engaged this continuing challenge.
