Civil Rights Scholarship of Nelson Lichtenstein Recognized by Journal of American History

In honor of Black History Month, the Journal of American History asked Professor Peniel Joseph of the University of Texas to curate a special on-line issue designed to highlight ten key articles, previously published in the JAH, illuminating the theme, “Black Power, American Democracy, and Dreams of Citizenship.” Among those selected was “Opportunities Found and Lost: Labor, Radicals, and the Early Civil Rights Movement,” written by Robert Korstad and Nelson Lichtenstein in 1988. Other authors include Darlene Clark Hine, Lani Guinier, Thomas Sugrue, Danielle McGuire, Ruth Feldstein, Jason Parker, Elizabeth Hinton, Russell Rickford, and Peniel Joseph. Access to the on-line issue can be found here: https://jah.oah.org/
