In this timely and dynamic collection of essays, Laura Dubek brings together a diverse group of scholars to explore the literary response to the most significant social movement of the twentieth century. Covering a wide range of genres and offering provocative readings of both familiar and lesser known texts, Living Legacies demonstrates how literature can be used not only to challenge the master narrative of the civil rights movement but also to inform and inspire the next generation of freedom fighters.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This monograph breaks ground-moving the reader beyond the `popular' narrative of the civil rights movement, which has largely been top-down, male-centered, and regionally focused, and infuses a multi-genre literary lens to interpret one of the most important historical event of the past." Thomas L. Bynum, Associate Professor of History, Middle Tennessee State University.
