[SR: 2185130], Paperback, [EAN: 9781566630269], Ivan R. Dee, Ivan R. Dee, Book, [PU: Ivan R. Dee], Ivan R. Dee, The year 1964 produced a watershed in American race relations. In one of the civil rights movement's most dramatic initiatives, thousands of Northern white college students were recruited to come south that summer in an effort to "break" Mississippi and secure voting rights for its black citizens. Nicolaus Mills traces the history of this Summer Project, including its origins and aftermath, and shows in detail how its consequences involved not only great victories but also violence (the murders of Michael Schwerner, James Chaney, and Andrew Goodman, among other events) and disillusion. His persuasive argument is that the noble quest for racial solidarity turned bitter and divisive in practice, climaxed by the Democratic party's rejection of the Mississippi Freedom Democrats at the 1964 national convention. In the rush of black anger that followed, the gains of the summer were forgotten and Black Power was born―and blacks went their separate way in trying to achieve equality in America. Relations between whites and blacks took a crucial turning which continues powerfully to influence our politics and social well-being to, 2366, African-American & Black, 2365, Ethnic & National, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2395, United States, 9681303011, American Revolution, 465246, Civil War, 9681307011, US Presidents, 2376, Historical, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4762, Africa, 4763, Algeria, 4997, Egypt, 4773, Ethiopia, 4781, Kenya, 4793, Nigeria, 4798, South Africa, 4799, Sudan, 4807, Zimbabwe, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 14278871, State & Local, 4853, United States, 4808, Americas, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4884, Asia, 4891, China, 4894, Hong Kong, 4895, India, 4897, Japan, 271588011, Korea, 4907, Pakistan, 4908, Philippines, 5032, Russia, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11300, African-American Studies, 11298, Specific Demographics, 11232, Social Sciences, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5571267011, Asian, 11093, International & World Politics, 5571255011, Politics & Government, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16022621, Political Science, 5571274011, Comparative Politics, 10759, Constitutions, 11086, History & Theory, 11111, Reference, 5571255011, Politics & Government, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Author:

Mills, Nicolaus

Title:

Like a Holy Crusade: Mississippi 1964 -- The Turning of the Civil Rights Movement in America

ISBN:

1566630266

A stirring and saddening account of the Mississippi Summer Project of 1964 and the turning of the civil rights movement in America. Mills recalls the triumphs of the episode but also shows how the quest for racial solidarity turned divisive and laid the foundations for the black power movement. A very moving book, a chronicle of a remarkable moment. --Studs Terkel. Extremely readable and fair-minded....Mills lets participants speak for themselves, which many of them do with a touching eloquence. --New York Times Book Review
