Description

Bridging the literatures of social movement theory, critical race studies, and feminist theory, this book offers new insight into how privilege affects the process of creating inclusive communities across racial and class differences. This is the only ethnographic study of a contemporary peace and justice network that critically examines how racial and class privilege interact in cross-difference organizing, and offers important practical solutions on how to build a new peace and justice movement.show more
