Women, lawyers, social workers, militants and priests all took part. Now Alkalimat looks at the activities of activists, and the backlash they faced. The 1960s was a war against racist terror, during which non-violent protestors faced murder, bombing, shooting and lynching. What was this mobilization? Who led it? How was unity maintained? What was the response? Abdul Alkalimat answers these and other questions by talking about the critical years of the 1960s in the Civil Rights movement. <br/> <i>Sponsor: </i>Department of African American Studies <br/> <i>Lecture Series: </i>Rethinking the Black Freedom Movement
