Grassroots Activism: Past and Present

As the current political dialogue swells with conversations about social justice, voting rights and the true meaning of democracy, Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) uses the power of storytelling to demonstrate how we can learn from the past to maximize the impact of modern community organizing. With the recent launch of the SNCC Digital Gateway and the concurrent production of Millennials of the Moral Movement: Prelude, CDS director Wesley Hogan and former CDS intern Kenneth Alexander Campbell sit down to discuss the importance of amplifying and empowering young voices. Read their conversation, “From the Inside Out“, in the latest installment of CDS’s new publishing partnership with the Oxford American.
