Dr. deGregory - Photo

Herstory: Civil Rights (and Wrongs) at Home and
Abroad, by Crystal deGregory, Ph.D.

A native of the Bahamas, historian and Historically Black College and University (HBCU) advocate   Dr. Crystal A. deGregory's "Herstory" uses her personal and professional experiences as a point of entry for exploring the relationships of two seemingly disparate nonviolent revolutions. By examining the relationship between the American modern Civil Rights Movement and the mid-twentieth century struggle for political change in the Bahamas, Dr. deGregory highlights the importance of education, explores themes such as race and class, and reveals the mutuality of nonviolent struggle across the African Diaspora.
