How Long?, How Long? retells the story of the civil rights from the previously overlooked perspective of its African-American women participants. A compelling and readable narrative history, How Long?, How Long? at the same time presents a rethinking of social movement theory and a controversial thesis: that chroniclers have egregiously neglected the most important leaders of the civil rights movement, African-American women, in favour of higher-profile African-American men and white women.
