A Movement Without Marches
summary
Women's claims on public institutions brought a range of new resources into poor African American communities. With these resources came new constraints, as public officials frequently responded to women's efforts by limiting benefits and attempting to control their personal lives. Scathing public narratives about women's dependency and their children's illegitimacy placed African American women and public institutions at the center of the growing opposition to black migration and civil rights in northern U.S. cities. Countering stereotypes that have long plagued public debate, ###A Movement Without Marches# offers a new paradigm for understanding postwar U.S. history.
