Roots of Justice: Stories of Organizing in Communities of Color (Chardon Press Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a foreword by Elizabeth Martinez, Roots of Justice recaptures some of the nearly forgotten histories of communities of color. These are the stories of people who fought back against exploitation and injustice--and won. From the Zoot Suiters who refused to put up with abuse at the hands of the Navy, to the women who organized the welfare rights movement of the 1970s, Roots of Justice shows how, through organizing, ordinary people have made extraordinary contributions to change society.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 152-154) and index.

About the Author
