Product Overview

"Struggle for a Better South" dispels the notion that all whites in the South stood united against social change in the 1960s. Gregg Michel''s compelling study of the Southern Student Organizing Committee (SSOC), the leading progressive organization created by young white activists in the South during that tumultuous decade, fills a crucial gap in the literature about New Left activism. Michel shows that the SSOC was the only activist group of the era that worked to cultivate white support for the social movement. The SSOC''s members gave themselves the delicate task of reconciling their love for the South and its history--warts and all--with their modern-day commitment to equality and justice for all people.
