“A vast choral pageant that recounts the momentous work of the civil rights struggle.”—The New York Times Book Review A monumental volume drawing upon nearly one thousand interviews with civil rights activists, politicians, reporters, Justice Department officials, and others, weaving a fascinating narrative of the civil rights movement told by the people who lived it Join brave and terrified youngsters walking through a jeering mob and up the steps of Central High School in Little Rock. Listen to the vivid voices of the ordinary people who manned the barricades, the laborers, the students, the housewives without whom there would have been no civil rights movements at all. In this remarkable oral history, Henry Hampton, creator and executive producer of the acclaimed PBS series Eyes on the Prize, and Steve Fayer, series writer, bring to life the country’s great struggle for civil rights as no conventional narrative can. You will hear the voices of those who defied the blackjacks, who went to jail, who witnessed and policed the movement; of those who stood for and against it—voices from the heart of America.

"Sahbaa Al-Barbari's story provides a unique perspective on Palestinian experience before and after the 1948 Nakba. Born in Gaza, Al-Barbari began her career as a school teacher and was an activist in her community. When Israel occupied the Gaza Strip in 1967, Al-Barbari was exiled from Palestine, continuing her activism as she lived in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Cyprus, Kuwait, Tunis, Libya, and Europe. Al-Barbari returned to Gaza in 1996. This is the second book in the Women's Voices from Gaza series, which honours women's unique and underrepresented perspectives on the social, material, and political realities of Palestinian life. The books in this series will benefit Middle East scholars, social justice and human rights advocates, and all who want to know more about the modern history of Palestine."--

Bringing together a diverse chorus of voices and experiences in the pursuit of collective bodily, emotional, and spiritual liberation, Practicing Yoga as Resistance examines yoga as it is experienced across the Western cultural landscape through an intersectional, feminist lens. Naming the systems of oppression that permeate our lived experiences, this collection and its contributors shine a light on the ways yoga practice is intertwined with these systems while offering insight into how people challenge and creatively subvert, mitigate, and reframe them through their efforts. From the disciplines of yoga studies, embodiment studies, women’s and gender studies, performance studies, educational studies, social sciences, and social justice, the self-identified women, queer, BIPOC, and White allies represented in this book present an interdisciplinary tapestry of scholarship that serves to add depth to a growing assemblage of yoga literature for the 21st century.
