520    The civil rights movement that loomed over the 1950s and 
       1960s was the tip of an iceberg, the legal and political 
       remnant of a broad, raucous, deeply American movement for 
       social justice that flourished from the 1920s through the 
       1940s. This contentious mix of home-grown radicals, labor 
       activists, newspaper editors, black workers, and 
       intellectuals employed every strategy imaginable to take 
       Dixie down, from a ludicrous attempt to organize black 
       workers with a stage production of Pushkin--in Russian--to
       the courageous fight of striking workers against police 
       and corporate violence in Gastonia in 1929. Historian 
       Gilmore shows how the movement unfolded against national 
       and global developments, gaining focus and finally 
       arriving at a narrow but effective legal strategy for 
       securing desegregation and political rights. Little-known 
       heroes abound in a book that will recast our understanding
       of the most important social movement in twentieth-century
       America.--From publisher description.
