Danielle McGuire 

When: Thu., Sept. 30, 7 p.m. 2010

The ugliness of racism and misogyny in America is sometimes glossed over when tales of the civil rights movement are recounted, but author Danielle McGuire pulls back the curtain on this era in her new book, At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance—A New History of the Civil Rights Movement From Rosa Parks to the Rise of Black Power. McGuire looks back at the role sexual violence against black women played in spurring black activism, including how this led to Rosa Parks' protest against the Montgomery bus system. In a blog at Huffington Post, McGuire writes, "I knew this was a story I had to tell when I figured out that black women had been enduring, resisting and testifying about interracial sexual violence for years and that these crucial and revealing moments had never made their way into the history of the civil rights movement." McGuire will read from and sign copies of her book starting at 7 p.m. —Zack Smith
