About the Book

In a brilliant rethinking of civil rights, Dylan C. Penningroth’s Before the Movement: The Hidden History of Black Civil Rights (Liveright Publishing Corporation, 2023) changes the way we think about Black history itself. Interweaving his own family history with long-forgotten documents found in county courthouse basements, he reveals how African Americans thought about, talked about, and used the law long before the marches of the 1960s. In a world that denied their constitutional rights, Black people built lives for themselves through the “rights of everyday use.” Before the Movement recovers a rich vision of Black life–a vision allied with, yet distinct from, the freedom struggle.
