Human nature and a revisionist view of history compel us to view the Civil Rights era as a time of forward motion and linear progress toward a more just society. Yet, the struggle for civil rights was ensconced in deep tensions, differing strategies, and difficult decisions which ultimately shaped the identity of the movement. The importance of respectability politics, the strategy of non-violence, the structure of leadership, the exclusion/allyship of identities, the inclusion of media - are pieces of the movement’s story that did not always fit together perfectly.

 The Rev. Shantell Hinton is Assistant University Chaplain, Assistant Director of Religious Life, Avanderbilt University Reverend Hinton is a native of Conway, Arkansas. She recently graduated with a Master of Divinity from Vanderbilt Divinity School where she was awarded the Kelly Miller Smith Institute for Black Church Studies Certificate, the Luke-Acts Prize, the Liston O. Mills Award, and the Florence Conwell Prize.
