About this title

Synopsis:

How did young people and popular conceptions of children and youth help to shape the black freedom struggle? How did young people contribute to and set the tone for the civil rights movement? In the first book to connect young people and ideas about children and youth with America's struggle for racial equality, Rebecca de Schweinitz explains how historical constructions of childhood and youth, and young people themselves, influenced the long history of the civil rights movement. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, If We Could Change the World presents the voices and experiences of participants who are rarely heard and explores familiar events from the black freedom struggle in new ways. In de Schweinitz's work, young people--elementary age, adolescent, and young adult--take their place as significant historical and political actors in the civil rights movement.

Book Description:

"De Schweinitz has written a remarkable book that combines a history of African American youth with the 'long history' of the civil rights movement to give us a study that, for the first time, truly contextualizes the role of African American young people in the momentous events of the 1950s and 1960s. This is an essential read for those interested in African American history and the history of social movements in the twentieth century."--Kenneth W. Goings, Ohio State University
