You Can’t Eat Freedom: Struggles for Social Justice After the Civil Rights Movement

You Can’t Eat Freedom: Struggles for Social Justice After the Civil Rights Movement

Presented by Greta de Jong Professor of African American History , UNR.

Black activism continued beyond the 1960s in efforts to secure economic reforms aimed at creating jobs, improving social services, and enabling all citizens to lead lives of dignity and autonomy. The story of these efforts, and the opposition they encountered from white supremacists, sheds light on current issues such as persistent racism and the plight of working-class communities—black and white—that were devastated by job losses and economic decline in the decades after the 1960s.
