Crosby et al. (2013) Rethinking and Un-Teaching Entrenched Movement Narratives: A Virtual Roundtable

Abstract

We five scholars saw Fire!!!'s call to rethink and revisit the Black freedom movement as a challenge. Not only were we inspired by the call, but we wanted to share how we learned from and had been challenged by one another's work, as we rethought and rewrote freedom movement narratives over the last decade. We each picked primary sources we believe are undervalued and rarely taught in the mainstream narratives of civil rights. We all wrote short descriptions of our submissions: what do these documents teach us about the movement? Then, to invoke the power of group-centered leadership, or the movement idea of call and response, two of us responded to each scholar's piece. We hope the result enriches and challenges the teaching and sharing of the movement. Organizing
