Another View of the Civil Rights Movement
Anne WorthamStreaming Video - 1988
Sociologist Anne Wortham is like nobody you've ever met, a distinction she's proud of. It's the basis of her political philosophy, her scholarship, and her self-esteem: that nobody exactly like her ever existed before, or will again. Her peers pressured her, but Anne Wortham could not bring herself to join the civil rights movement-it violated her own story, her particular individuality. As a black, she stands apart in criticizing the civil rights movement for promoting reverse racism and the welfare state. In this program with Bill Moyers, Wortham shares her experiences and argues that all black Americans do not share one common experience.
