Summary: The essays presented here offer a wide-ranging and inclusive interpretation of the Black Freedom Struggle that stretches beyond the confines of the "old South" from 1954 to 1968. By expanding the chronology and geography of the Black Freedom Struggle, the essays in this collection enhance the existing historical narrative, while also complicating our understanding of black activism over the last century and a half.
