The Long Arc of Justice: Revisiting the Civil Rights Movement

Award-winning historian Jeanne Theoharis debunks contemporary imaginings of the civil rights movement in her forthcoming book, A More Beautiful and Terrible History: The Uses and Misuses of Civil Rights History. By showing how the movement was unpopular, disruptive, and courageously persevering in its time, Theoharis challenges exceptionalist narratives of American democracy and calls attention to the crucial work that remains to be done.
