Editorial Reviews


“An authentic discussion must take place in order to challenge our miseducation and denial of the historical forces that helped to shape the present.” —From the foreword “As this masterly collection of essays shows, no one is better equipped than John Kirk to put the Little Rock crisis in the context of the ‘long’ civil rights movement in Arkansas. No one better explores the nuances of divisions within both the black and white communities or better captures the agency of African Americans in the development of race relations in the state.” —Tony Badger, University of Cambridge, author of New Deal / New South

More About the Author

Hello, my name is John A. Kirk and I am George W. Donaghey Professor and Chair of History 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.
