Speaking Out :  Activism and Protest in the 1960s and 1970s is a collection of readings profiling 21 different activist movements that came of age in the 60s and 70s.
Each book chapter is  written by recognized scholars who have studied and written about these movements in depth and is  followed by primary source documents that they have chosen to provide additional insight into each movement. The chapters not only offer a comprehensive overview of the most important social and political activist groups of these two decades, but they also locate each group’s complex origins, strengths, weaknesses, and legacy. As these authors make clear, the activist groups of this period each had their share of successes and each made their share of mistakes and miscalculations. Thus, together, they left a most complicated legacy for future generations.
