The Path to the Greater, Freer, Truer World: Southern Civil Rights and Anticolonialism, 1937–1955

by Lindsey R. Swindall

Left-leaning African Americans united in the American South in the late 1930s to fight back against racism and the oppression of workers in America and around the world. The cloud of suspicion and repression of the McCarthy era destroyed these radical organizations, but their powerful efforts and ideas concerning human rights helped spark the civil rights movement of the 1950s-60s and live on in modern day activism. Read about the cooperation between these progressive activists in Lindsey Swindall’s new book, The Path to the Greater, Freer, Truer World.
