Editorial Reviews


"Provides another piece of the puzzle as we seek a fuller understanding of the civil rights movement beyond Birmingham, Selma, Atlanta, and all the other places that have dominated movement literature for decades." --Cynthia Griggs Fleming, The Journal of Southern History, February 2013

"Provocative and accessible, ARSNICK offers unprecedented insight and new topics previously missing from civil rights history...a compelling read." --Journal of African American History, Spring 2013

"Wallach and Kirk’s volume is an excellent starting point for understanding SNCC’s statewide campaigns." --H-Net Reviews, January 2012

“John Kirk and Jennifer Jensen Wallach come along and show us that Arkansas SNCC is a veritable gold-mine of historical evidence. It’s a humbling and wonderful part of the scholarly process to be taken to task by others who find new approaches and new sources. In this case, Wallach and Kirk note that the stories coming out of ‘ARSNICK,’ or the Arkansas branch of SNCC, significantly challenge the ‘master narrative’ of the organization. I would add that the evidence they uncover has the potential to challenge the master narrative of the civil rights movement as a whole." --Wesley Hogan in Arkansas Review

"The battle to desegregate Central High School in Little Rock is widely recognized as one of the seminal moments in US history. But aside from this incident, historians have largely ignored the struggle for civil rights in Arkansas. This collection of essays, memoirs, and documents seeks to fill this gap. ... Indeed, in the coming years, these sources should provide a springboard for much-needed additional scholarship on these very subjects." -Choice, Dec. 2011

About the Author

Jennifer Jensen Wallach is Assistant Professor of History at the University of North Texas and the author of Closer to the Truth Than Any Fact: Memoir, Memory, and Jim Crow and Richard Wright: From Black Boy to World Citizen.

More About the Author

Hello, my name is John A. Kirk and I am George W. Donaghey Professor of History and Director of the Institute on Race and Ethnicity at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR).

My research interests cover several strands.

The first is the "short" civil rights movement in the 1950s and 1960s which centers on the leadership of Martin Luther King, Jr.

The second is the "long civil rights movement" that looks at the origins and legacies of struggles for racial justice in the 1950s and 1960s.

The third is a focus on African American History and civil rights in the state of Arkansas.

My teaching reflects my research interests covering topics such as King's leadership, local civil rights struggles, and African American, southern, and US history in the twentieth century.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Arsnick tells a story of grassroots civil rights activity over shadowed by earlier events in Lille Rock and more dramatic ones in Mississippi and elsewhere. Told by the participants themselves, it has an immediacy and directness. It tells of the vital but short-lived role of SNCC and its transition from integration to Black Power.
