Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book provides valuable information about the youth councils and college chapters of the NAACP over the course of its history as an indispensable organization within the civil rights movement. Other texts on the movement often minimized the role youth councils played in the struggle, instead emphasizing the legal actions taken by the NAACP in securing civil rights legislation. While this is reasonable given the importance of rulings such as Brown v. Board of Education, the series of pay equalization rulings starting in the late 1930s, and numerous other NAACP cases, Dr. Thomas Bynum provides a critical narrative of the parallel youth struggle that contributed to the development and continued evolution of later youth protest movements. Prior to reading this book, I knew little about the NAACP outside of their larger legal battles. I instead viewed the direct action component of the civil rights movement as generally limited to the later student organizations and activism of the early 1960s. The information is well organized and provides a easy to follow timeline based on the development of NAACP youth councils/college chapters, their key figures, influences, and challenges. This is a must read for those interested in a more in depth and complete understanding of the role of youth activism in the civil rights movement, its origins, and the lesser known agents that furthered the cause of racial equality in America.
