Refusing Racism: White Allies and the Struggle for Civil Rights
Why and how have whites joined people of colour to fight against white supremacy in the United States? What have they risked and what have they gained? For anyone who has wondered about the character, motivations, and contributions of white civil rights activists, Refusing Racism offers rich portraits of four contemporary white American activists who have dedicated their lives to the struggle for civil rights. Drawing heavily on interviews and memoirs, this volume offers honest accounts of their thoughts and experiences and shows how their commitments are central to our ongoing history.
Meet the White Allies: Virginia Foster Durr, J. Waties Waring, Anne McCarty Braden, and Herbert R. Kohl.
