Defying Dixie: The Radical Roots of Civil Rights


We'll discuss the Civil Rights movement and its beginnings across the country and right here in the Charlotte region. We'll discuss the battles over Jim Crow and segregation in the post World War I era, the role Communism played in the early Civil Rights movement. We'll also take a look at Nazi Germany through the eyes of African Americans in the Civil Rights movement. 


Glenda Gilmore - Professor of History, Yale University and Author, Defying Dixie
