Others are built around illusions and preconceptions. American history has been a dialectic between exclusion of blacks from American society, and their attempts to get in. The civil rights movement was and is part of that struggle to be included in society, a struggle which continues to today. In this lecture, Abdul Alkalimat talks about the organization of six civil rights organizations in terms of time, space and force. <br/> <i>Sponsor: </i>Department of African American Studies <br/> <i>Lecture Series: </i>Rethinking the Black Freedom Movement
