Call For Papers
 

Social Justice Movements in the Ohio River Valley and Upper South, 1924-2006

Deadline: September 15, 2006

CALL FOR PAPERS:
Social Justice Movements in the Ohio River Valley and Upper South,
1924-2006
Special Issue of Ohio Valley History, Winter 2007:
On March 6, 2006 revered anti-racist activist Anne Braden died at the age of eighty-one in Louisville, Kentucky. For nearly sixty years, Braden worked in support of a variety of social justice movements in Louisville, the Ohio River Valley, and the South. Her activism in the Civil Rights movement began in the late 1940s and catapulted her to  regional fame in the 1950s with a housing desegregation action that she and her husband Carl led in Louisville in 1954. In the late 1950s she  joined the Southern Conference Educational Fund (SCEF) and traveled the  region to garner white support for the burgeoning Civil Rights movement. In time, her life's work spilled over into anti-war, civil liberties, and lesbian and gay rights activism, and into campaigns against police brutality and environmental racism. Braden was among the staunchest of the African American community's white allies, and her message of the  need to act against racism touched nearly every social justice movement since World War II. Her death has inspired the creation of the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research at the University of Louisville, which is dedicated to understanding the processes and conditions that create and sustain social justice and highlighting the legacy of the southern Civil Rights movement. This special issue of Ohio Valley History seeks to use this moment to explore the history, nature, and relationship between the various grass-roots social movements that have flourished in the Ohio River Valley and the Upper South during Braden's eventful life. We seek  papers that examine a variety of social justice movements on both sides of the Ohio River, including (but not limited to):
* The Civil Rights movement
* The labor movement
* Civil liberties advocacy
* Anti-war protests
* Women's rights
* Environmentalism
* The gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender movement
* Immigrant activism
 Please send four copies of a proposal of no more than two pages clearly outlining subject, arguments, and relevance to the special issue's topic(s), and a vita of no more than two pages, to:
Dr. A. Glenn Crothers, Associate Editor

 crothers@filsonhistorical.org Proposals are due by September 15, 2006, and will be reviewed by the
editors of OVH, and Dr. Catherine Fosl, director of the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research at the University of Louisville.  Authors whose proposals are accepted will complete their submissions by February 1, 2007, when they will go through our normal peer review process.
