LBJ Library Educator Webinar with Danielle McGuire
July 28 Session 13: Danielle McGuire

The Radical Roots of the Montgomery Bus Boycott—a women’s movement for bodily integrity.

Black women's protests against sexual assault and interracial rape fueled civil rights campaigns throughout the South beginning during WWII and continuing through the Black Power movement. The Montgomery bus boycott was the baptism, not the birth of that struggle.
