Abstract

In January of this year, one of the editors of Monthly Review asked me what was happening in the Southern freedom movement. What, he asked, had it accomplished, what were its long-range objectives, where did it appear to be going? This article is an attempt to deal with these questions. It is not really an attempt to answer them. I have been active in the movement in the South for the past 17 years, but I don't know the answers to all these questions—and I'm not sure anyone else in the movement does either.
