Social Activism: Civil Rights and Segregation
Dr. Kris Burrell
Discuss the interconnections amongst African-American intellectuals, such as Kenneth Clark, Milton Galamison, Bayard Rustin, and Malcolm X, as they worked together, and at times competed with one another, to shape the course of the struggle for black equality in New York City during the 1950s and 1960s.
