Voices for Civil Rights: Reflections on a Movement
In the final installment of Voices for Civil Rights, we hear some reflections on the Civil Rights Movement as a whole.
Kathleen Cleaver describes a loss in intensity in the movement over the years, while Ruby Sales frames the movement as part of a larger fight for human dignity. Finally, we return to Jamila Jones, who recalls how as a child she struggled to understand the segregation on her daily bus ride.
