Summary Examining three interconnected case studies, Tamar Carroll powerfully demonstrates the ability of grassroots community activism to bridge racial and cultural differences and effect social change. Drawing on a rich array of oral histories, archival records, newspapers, films, and photographs, Carroll shows how poor people transformed the antipoverty organisation Mobilization for Youth and shaped the subsequent War on Poverty.
