Jeanne Theoharis argues that it is not just important to learn about what happened during the civil rights movement, but that we must also understand how the history of the movement has been used and misused over time. Most of you suggested in your introductory discussion that you understood the civil rights movement to be the fight against segregation in the 1960s, involving activists like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King. What can you remember about how you formed this impression? How does the history of civil rights movements in the west in the 1940s and in the North in the 1950s and 1960s covered in this unit’s readings challenge this interpretation? Why does Theoharis argue that this longer, wider, and broader reading of the history is critical today?
