Historian Danielle McGuire will discuss her groundbreaking new book that reinterprets the civil rights movement in terms of the sexualized violence and rape that marked race relations in America for centuries. Her book, At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape and Resistance--A New History of the Civil Rights Movement from Rosa Parks to the Rise of Black Power, may be among the most important explorations of race and violence ever published. It begins with a little known fact: Rosa Parks, famous for her role in the Montgomery bus boycott, was a seasoned anti-rape activist and investigator for the NAACP long before she gave up her seat on that bus. The personal stories in this remarkable book and the thorough research done by the author will likely change the way you think about the civil rights movement. Please don’t miss this powerful program. (jasbro)
