Nick Mills

Faculty member Nick Mills writes stirringly in Dissent magazine online about the interdependent black and white forces that brought about the 1964 Civil Rights Act from JFK's 1963 speech following federal intervention that allowed two black students to enroll at the University of Alabama, to the momentum generated by Martin Luther King, the grassroots work of SNCC's Bob Moses and others, to the legislation stewarded by Lyndon Johnson.
