Book Displays: Equal Justice Initiative 2021: Books

Virtual displays based on the 2021 A History of Racial Injustice calendar.


Despite Sarah Mae Flemming's key influence on ending segregation, her impact still remains largely obscured in texts and popular thinking about the Civil Rights Movement. As we don't have many texts about her or that even mention her name, we have curated a list of titles that put her experience and impact into context, providing titles that discuss the fight and power of constitutional litigation, grassroots advocacy, contributions of everyday people, the pivotal Montgomery Bus Boycott, and more.
