Abstract:

In “Race, Culture and Community-Building in the ‘New Boston’, 1950-1969,” Daniel McClure argues that historical treatments of post-World War II black social movements heretofore have privileged narratives centered on the local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and middle-class professional activism and leadership more generally. The consequence has been a muting of important class, ideological, and generational differences among black Bostonians during this period. McClure contends that by shifting the emphasis to the activities of cultural workers, historians are better able to both capture the grassroots demands for community control that anchored the Black Freedom Movement’s “golden age,” and appreciate the foundational role of cultural institutions in African American community-building overall. Locating his project in a study of local cultural/educational worker Elma Lewis, McClure focuses on the activities of black community organizers from the onset of Boston’s urban renewal in 1950 through the “Grove Hall Riot” of 1967.
