Before Brown details the ferment in civil rights that took place across the South before the momentous Brown vs. Board of Education decision in 1954.

he course of politics in the South and the nation into the next century.This work explores the growth of the movement through its various manifestations—the activities of politicians, civil rights leaders, religious figures, labor unionists, and grass-roots activists—throughout the 1940s and 1950s.
