New Women of the Old Faith

Gender and American Catholicism in the Progressive Era
  • By Kathleen Sprows Cummings
$35.00
Carter reveals the complex and often tense relationships between the Johnson administration and activist groups advocating further social change, and he extends the traditional timeline of the civil rights movement beyond the passage of the Voting Rights Act. Examining grassroots movements and organizations and their complicated relationships with the federal government and state authorities between 1965 and 1968, Carter takes readers through the inner workings of local civil rights coalitions as they tried to maintain strength within their organizations while facing both overt and subtle opposition from state and federal officials. He also highlights internal debates and divisions within the White House and the executive branch, demonstrating that the federal government's relationship to the movement and its major goals was never as clear-cut as President Johnson's progressive rhetoric suggested.
