9781425938796: Emmett Till: The Sacrificial Lamb of the Civil Rights Movement

Clenora Hudson-Weems, Ph.D., was the first to establish the position of the August 28, 1955, brutal lynching of Emmett Louis ?Bobo?Till, the 14-year-old Black Chicago youth, for whistling at a 21-year-old white woman (Carolyn Bryant) in Money, MS, as the catalyst of the Modern Civil Rights Movement. In her 1988 doctoral dissertation, ?Emmett Till: The Impetus for the Modern Civil Rights Movement? (U. of Iowa), later published as Emmett Till: The Sacrificial Lamb of the Civil Rights Movement (1994), she carefully documents the Till murder case as having set the stage for the 1956 Montgomery Bus Boycott, since it happened 3 months and 3 days before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery bus, December 1, 1955. A Ford Fellow, she quests for truth surrounding the underplaying of the case in American history, concluding that Parks? demonstration was more palatable than Till's bloated face, in spite of King's assertion in Stride Toward Freedom that pressed in the minds of the Alabamians during the boycott was the image of Till. Contending that ?Historians will talk about the good and the bad, but they won't deal with the ugly,? informant for her 1988 doctoral dissertation (U. of Iowa), Rayfield Mooty, Labor Union and Civil Rights activist who advised the mother, Mamie, during the ordeal, help to make the case a ?cause c?l?bre.?Many luminaries in the academy praised the author for her bold, brave stance regarding this case, including Yale University's late John Blassingame (?When you really think about it, Hudson-Weems is absolutely right.?); the late C.

Book Description AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 4th. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.ABOUT THE AUTHOR. CLENORA HUDSON-WEEMS is Professor of English at the University of Missouri-Columbia. She received a certificate of French Studies from l Universite de Dijon, France and a doctorate in American/African-American World Studies from the University of Iowa. Hudson-Weems is the recipient of several honors and awards including a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship, a CIC Internship and Ford Fellowships. She is author of Africana Womanism: Reclaiming Ourselves, Africana Womanist Literary Theory, The Definitive Emmett Till: Passion Battle of a Woman for Truth Intellectual Justice, Contemporary Africana Theory Thought: A Guide to Africana Studies (editor) and co-author of Toni Morrison. She is a contributor to a number of books and scholarly journals. Her forthcoming work is a novel, Soul Mates. Hudson-Weems has dug relentlessly into Southern justice, revealing the stench and ugliness of race hatred, American style. She has captured the essence of Emmett, a sacrificial lamb whose death has provided an escape to life for millions who were trapped in a web of hate. Mamie Till-Mobley Mother of Emmett Till In Africana Womanism, Hudson-Weems sent unaccustomed shock waves through the domain of popular thinking about feminism and established herself as a careful independent thinker, unafraid to unsettle settled opinion. In Emmett Till, she drops the other shoe and challenges the most sacred shibboleths of the origins of the Civil Rights Movement. Not everyone will want to agree with what she has to say. But few will lay the book down before she has had her say. And she says a lot America needs to hear again right now. C. Eric Lincoln, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus Duke University I found Emmett Till to be an unusually revealing and exciting narration of an important twentieth century event, crucial in the origins of the Civil Rights Movement. When you really think about it, Hudson-Weems is absolutely right. John Blassingame, Ph.D., Professor of History Yale University. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781425938796
