CfP: Global Movements for Civil Rights: A Retrospective

Call for papers, deadline 15 October 2022

As we approach the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, we are seeking papers to create a special issue journal to cover topics relating to Civil Rights of the early 1960s for our Fall 2024 edition. How did civil rights flourish in not only the United States, but other nations? How have we expanded our understanding of the international implications of the Civil Rights Movement? What people have moved into the historical portrait of this time that have been previously unknown? How did civil rights translate among diverse populations?

Submit your article proposals for our special Fall 2024 edition focusing on the Civil Rights Movement in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
