CALL FOR ABSTRACTS/PAPERS: New Studies of The Congress of Racial Equality
Over the past 15 years, new interpretations of the civil rights and Black power movements have emerged. Within this burgeoning field, however, the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) receives little attention. An edited volume that brings together new studies of CORE is long overdue. Possible areas of research this anthology will cover are: the history of local CORE chapters; CORE’s national-level leaders; the work of CORE field secretaries; CORE and the Black power movement; SEDFRE; pacifism, non-violence and CORE actions; the Journey of Reconciliation and the Freedom Rides; women leadership in CORE; and interracialism and CORE.
Historians, activists (especially former CORE members), and other scholars in the humanities and social sciences who are interested in submitting work for consideration in this project should send abstracts and/or manuscripts to Brian Purnell.
