CORE, A Study in the Civil Rights Movement, 1942-1968.
Authoritative and well-documented study of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) and its role in the modern civil rights movement. In the 1960s, CORE led drives for desegregation and voter registration and initiatives for jobs, school integration and better housing in the North. The authors investigate CORE’s origins in radical Christian pacifism, its relationships with other civil rights groups, and its decline in the mid-1960s.
